Recipe Tips

Proper storing keeps cookies at their best. If you will not be eating your cookies within three days, freeze them. Make sure the cookies are completely cool before placing them in storage containers. Otherwise, they’re likely to stick together. Keep soft or chewy cookies separate from crisp ones.

One of, if not the BEST chewy cookie recipes out there. They are a crowd pleaser and keep well in our cookie jar ((but hardly last 2 days!)). Super soft/chewy and the coconut flavor is spot on without any overbearing 'tropical' notes that some people might not like. We occasionally add in mini choc chips and chopped almonds. A must try!! Thank you Land'OLakes for such a wonderful recipe.

I made this recipe several years ago at Christmas time and loved it. They are moist, chewy and full of coconut flavor. They are now a regualr cookie I bake at Christmas and other times of the year.

The very first time I made this recipe it became a family favorite... my teen daughter, who is not even a huge fan of sweets, said, as she ate one warm from the oven, "they are like a cloud of warm coconutty goodness."

I reduced the sugars to 1/2 cup each. I loved it! Will definitely make again.

This recipe is wonderful. The cookie is soft and chewy and the flavor is yummy. I omitted the candied cherries, as I am not a fan of them. Will definitely make this recipe again.
