These cookies are so easy to prepare. I add 1/2 teaspoon orange extract and 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated orange peel for added flavor. Also sprinkle with confectioners sugar when cooling. Yummy!! Read More

This had the potential to be a great cookie recipe even though the directions could have been written more clearly. Novice bakers might be confused in that the sugars were not listed together nor does the submitter indicate what size the cookie dough should be dropped onto the cookie sheets. The main issue however is that these are just too sweet. In hindsight I would cut the sugar back by a half cup perhaps using only 1-1/2 cups total between the two sugars. I omitted the nuts and substituted chocolate chips but that is just a taste preference and of course did not affect the sweetness of the dough itself. Loved the combination of the oatmeal and coconut (and my addition of chocolate chips) but it couldn't overcome the too-sweet dough. Read More

I have to agree w/ another reviewer who was upset at how the directions were written. The ingredients should be listed in the order they are called for in the recipe. Someone at allrecipes.com should really fix this. Despite the directions the cookies themselves are fantastic. The only change I had to make was to bake the cookies for about 15 min @ 350. If I baked them according to the directions they would have been undercooked. I got almost 5 dozen cookies from this recipe Im not sure how they figured 36 cookies unless you make them huge.

I thought this recipe was absolutely wonderful. This is an easy 5 star! I made a few minor adjustments because of personal preferences and where I live (Bernalillo NM 6300 altitude). Cooking time 11 minutes exactly 1/2 cup butter 1/4 margarine 3/4 cup brown sugar and 3/4 cup white sugar and 1 3/4 coconut. Could not ask for a better cookie:) Thank you. I make a different batch of cookies every one to two weeks for my wife and neighbors. Mega thumbs up from everyone! Read More

Yummy! Used Splenda in place of sugars (white = 1 cup Splenda brown = 1 cup Splenda 1/4 cup sugar-free maple syrup). Only used 1 cup oats. Flattened out cookie before baking. Thank you will make again! Read More
