    I made these cookies twice. The second time, I toasted the coconut first. This made them much better, and more "coconutty". To toast the coconut just spread it on a baking sheet, and bake it at 350 for 5-10 mins, stirring a few times. I also used rice krispies instead of cornflakes the second time, and I liked it much better. Great recipe!  -  26 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Great cookies, Melissa. I made a batch in compliance with the recipe and agreed with a couple other reviewers that they had a slightly salty taste. The second batch was made eliminating the baking powder and 1/2 the salt, also added toasted walnuts and chocolate chips. Baked at 375degrees for 9 minutes. CRISPY AND DELISH! Just the way my family likes them. Thanks for sharing.  -  27 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Toast the coconut at 350 degrees for ten minutes prior to putting into the mixture, add a 1/2 cup chocolate chip cookies, and add 1/2 cup more flour - perfection! The toasting of the coconut really gives it a true coconut flavor. I was also generous on the vanilla. Excellent!  -  17 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
