  1. These were a great choice to make with my kids as it was all prepared in ten minutes but my impression from reading the description was that this would be a soft chewy cookie but really this was more like cake which was fine but not for a cookie.It was still very tasty though so if I were to be making a raspberry coconut cake I'd definitely would rate it higher. Also I tried it with less almond extract and more because of the previous review; I definitely don't recommend increasing the almond extract.
  2. These cookies are nice & soft & delicious! The almond flavour didn't come through as strong as I expected it to. They reminded me a lot of Voortman's raspberry turnover cookies.
  3. Thank you so much Rinder for sharing your incredible cookie recipe. These pretty cookies were large, tender, tasty and light. What a lovely blending of flavours; coconut, raspberry and almond...Yummm....Its a keeper.


I live in St. Albert,Alberta moved here from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia in Dec.2001 as my significant other George is in the Air Force here. My two daughters and four grandchildren are back home in N.S. so I miss home very much,if there are any other Nova Scotians out there,I would love to hear from you. For fun I love Garage Sales,Flea Markets,collecting dishes,shopping,going out to a nice restaurant for dinner. Don't have a favorite cookbook,just love looking @ all recipes & finding ones that sound good enough to try. Love animals,we have two cats. If I had a month off I would go visit my family and would love to go to Europe,so I guess a month wouldn't be enough unless I could take my family to Europe with me. Guess I'll just have to win the lottery!!!
