I found these sweets quick and easy to make. They would add an old fashioned touch of elegance to any tray of goodies. I used parchment to line my cookie sheet and had no trouble with sticking but I slightly under-baked the first sheet and they ended up too soft. Just make sure the edges are golden and they should be fine. Also they spread our alot! I thought I was making pretty small drops until they came out! They were about four times larger in diameter! All in all very very good! Read More

I tried the 1st batch as directed-and I ended up with cookies that had spread over the whole pan. The 2nd batch I omitted the cornstarch replaced 1/4 c of sugar with icing sugar (confectioners) and added 2tbsp of flour. Beautiful! Read More

I made a double batch of these. I did drizzle them with chocolate. It adds a really snazzy touch to them. My first batch I followed the directions. I found that greasing and starching the cookie sheet DID NOT work. They were difficult to remove and frustrating. The second batch I used parchment paper which worked wonderfully. Whoever invented parchment paper deserves a scratch and sniff sticker! Read More

Like most others I got coconut patties. Not sure where I went wrong I followed the recipe.. I beat the bejesus out of the egg whites and as soon as I added sugar (even the first spoonful) it went flat. Anyone who claims they didn't get a unicookie is simply lying. I whipped the eggs until they peaked like Mt. Everest and then the sugar flattened them out like Kansas. This recipe is a good way to lower your self esteem. Read More

Excellent! I flollowed the advice of others and replaced the cornstarch with 1/4 cup flour. They were cripsy on the outside and soft in the center. I would recomend doubling the batch because one is not nearly enough:) I made half of them with chocolate chips and coco. Mmmmm chocolate:) Read More

We loved these cookies! 'Perfection'. I didn't have any trouble at all getting them off the cookie sheet like others have reported I used just baking spray. I mixed in 1/4 C. flour instead of the small amount of cornstarch. I also did not use any chocolate but they were great anyway! Read More

I think there's something wrong with this recipe... mine turned out runny flat and really weird. I added a photo of how they turned out. Read More

I thought these were super easy to make and tasted great. They are very sweet but that is how i like cookies. I made a double recipe using half splenda and half sugar. My cookies did not stick to the pans i guess that has happened to other reviewers. I did grease the pans and coat with cornstarch and they came right off with a spatula. Read More

I rated a little low on the kid friendliness just because I'm not sure many kids like coconut. These are wonderful tasting and very easy. I omit the chocolate and add a little almond extract for variety. I have also made these with Splenda and can't tell the difference from regular sugar. You don't have to know how to cook to make these great cookies. Read More
