These chewy coconut cookies can be dipped in melted chocolate, but are just as good without the chocolate. They keep for up to a week if kept in an airtight container.

My family and I found these to be the best coconut cookies. I had bought the coconut for my Christmas cookie the usuall macaroon. but I forgot the can milk needed to make them I jumped on to all recipes and as usuall it saved my day and a trip to the store. I whipped the eggs and sugar in my mixer till they were a lemon color. they came out great. Read More

If you are looking for "fried coconut eggs" this is your recipe. There was absolutely no resemblance to a cookie whatsoever. It was a real mess. I added about a cup of flour to the mixture and it baked up like cookies (15 minutes) but then they were dry. Read More

Not bad - I wonder if the author made a mistake in the recipe - the ingredients say 2 eggs but the instructions mention "the egg". I tried it with 2 eggs first looked really sloppy so threw that batch away and made a 2nd batch using just one egg - turned out good. Read More

Try using an electric wisk it makes the eggs and sugar more fluffy and add additional coconut and walnuts(optional)to make the cookies a little bit thicker. Read More

I'm gonna go with the middle rating but unfortunately I had the same miserable experience as some of the other reviewers. However I believe I must have done something wrong. If other people made it and it came out good it must be possible. Firstly I think I had a scant cup of coconut. Secondly I had a large egg. Mine weren't quite as runny as the others (maybe they had JUMBO eggs?). But they still made a disaster of my cookie sheets and only held up in the center. I'd probably make sure I had enough coconut and use a medium egg if I made them again. I'm not sure I wouldn't just try a different recipe first though. Shame - they seem to have potential... if you can figure them out. Read More

This was horrible "cookies" did not cook I added extra coconut to begin with to try to frim it up some but had to add flour after cooking the first batch. the ones with flour had no taste. So when it comes to this cookie you have three choices. Have a mess of a cookie add flour and take away flavor or just stop before making it to begin with. I will chose the last one from now on.
