I had these cookies at a BnB some years ago. They were fantastic! The inn keeper stated she added about 1/4 c of shredded coconut which really added to the flavor. I have made these numerous times and they are always a huge hit.

I have been wanting to try this recipe for a very long time. I finally did it and the cookies did not sread like they should have. What did I do wrong? The dough was very crumbly and the cookie just didn't spread like a cookie

i think it tasted very good

I liked the cookies but I didn't find them to be moist and chewy enough. I would try the recipe a second time to see the results though.
