Very yummy. I added more coconut and used a little less oats along with mini M&M's instead of chocolate chips. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these cookies exactly as written. I've never baked with Cisco before, and I am not sure I will again. These did not bake nicely, and they didn't have any real flavor at all. The only thing they had going for them was the texture they had. Very delicate despite all the stuff that's it in. However, I couldn't taste any coconut, or pecan, or anything else. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made these cookies, Yum, Yum. Did not have coconut so used dried cherries soaked in brandy. Also doubled the choc. chips. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fantastic cookie!!! I used butter instead of crisco and 2/3 cup of crunchy pecan granola and reduced the oatmeal by 2/3 cups plus I added raisens. Very chewy on the inside. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! I add extra chocolate chips and nuts but instead of putting them in the batter I scoop the cookies out and press the extra goodies into the tops and sides of the cookies. They look like they came from the bakery! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great cookie recipe makes dozens and keeps well. Great for making Christmas platters. I like them without coconut. I add extra pecans. It's faster cookie making if you just make small balls with your hands item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved this recipie. We live in a high altitude place and these cookies baked up great!! My family loved them. Very yummy!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made them with just butter and just Crisco and also tried a combination of Crisco and butter. Crisco is the winner. I had also added white chocolate chips, raisins, Heath Bar bits,a couple tablespoon peanut butter. Made 12 doz and gave them out to the office. Raves and when are you going to make them again. Crisco is the way to go. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used butter instead of Crisco and they turned out flat and greasy. Thankfully I checked the oven right at 8 mins or they would've been burned too. Reduced oven temp to 325 which helped with the burning. I gave it 5 stars so I wouldn't ruin the rating since I messed up by using butter. I think next time I will just use Food Network Magazine's Chewy Oatmeal-Raisin Cookie recipe and add the choc chips and coconut. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I found the taste to be rather flat, my feeling is it needs more brown sugar [less white] and more vanilla. item not reviewed by moderator and published
