Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the baking powder, baking soda, flour and salt.

Fold in the oats, vanilla extract and shredded coconut flakes.

Form walnut-sized balls of the mixture and drop 2 inches apart onto parchment paper-lined sheet pans. Bake in a preheated oven for about 10 minutes until the bottoms of the cookies are golden brown. Remove from oven and cool completely.

When the cookies are cool, dip them halfway into the melted white chocolate and then into the toasted shredded coconut flakes. Set them down onto parchment paper-lined sheet pans to dry completely.

I followed some other reviews and altered the recipe... 1 1/2c Flour 1 1/2 stick butter 1c sugar 2 eggs Also used old fashioned oats, all I had. ...... I made a little bit bigger at first but stick to a walnut size because they do expand... Ive never had luck with white chocolate and getting it into a creamy consistency so when i spread it on with a spatula. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was looking to use up a bag of white chocolate chips, I was excited to find a recipe by Paula Deen. I did not read the reviews as everything Paula makes is usually pretty good. The cookies are dry and too crumbly. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I would not make these again. The entire batch went in the trash. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This cookie has the potential to be really good but has such an overpowering BUTTER taste! I thought 2 sticks of butter was too much but I made it as directed anyway. Next time I'll try just 1 stick of butter and add 2 eggs (instead of 1. It is definitely worth trying to alter it to taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published
They have good taste but they definatly need the white chocolate coating because they are to dry and bland with out it. I agree with the other reviews that 1 egg and 2 1/4 cups flour is not right. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this cookie, so I was surprised it had such low ratings. I compared the recipe that's listed here to a recipe I used to an older one I had printed out. The old recipe only called for 1 1/2 c. flour, so hopefully that will fix the crumbly, dry texture. item not reviewed by moderator and published
best dog biscuits ever...bad cookie!!! too dry, too crumbly, and wouldn't flatten. at least my dog likes them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cookies were too dry I flatten them I . Were not at all like they looked on Paula's show. I should have known that one egg was not enough and 2 1/4 cups flour would make them too dry. Food network please send me the corrected recipe. ALL item not reviewed by moderator and published
WELL...I should have read all the reviews before making this recipe. I scored big points for the presentation-but the cookies themselves were termed as 'sawdust bites...' My brother discovered if you let the cookie sit in milk for a minute they're very tasty...I burned the white chocolate for lack of attention and used dark chocolate instead. The tops were very tasty :) Not one I will remake soon though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
very good, not as tasty a i thought they would be, but everyone that tried one loves them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read through all the reviews before I made these and made the adjustments that most of the reviews suggested. I added 1 egg and 1/2 cup of white sugar and these cookies turned out great. I also only baked for 8 minutes since my oven tends to run hot. They turned out moist and a little chewy and the flavor is great. I agree with the reviews...2 1/4 cups of flour with the oats is too much dry ingredients for only one egg. I think in this recipe size matters too lol...the smaller cookies did not flatten but the suggested size (walnut) in the recipe flattened nicely. item not reviewed by moderator and published
these cookies look dry in the picture, i learned a lesson today, read the reviews before waisting my ink,know what i mean.a.b. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cookies were very dry almost sandy. They did not flatten. I followed the recipe exactly. I will add granulated sugar and another egg and maybe a little more coconut. I am sorry I did not read the reviews before I made the cookies. I will do that next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were great. Only thing I added was 1/2 cup sugar. Plenty moist, and the white chocolate frosting with toasted coconut were a perfect touch. LOVE these! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were horrible cookies using the recipe as written. Definitely follow the suggestions below. They were very dry and "flour-y" when they came out the oven. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yucky,Lousy, and a waste of time and money. I took the advice of those that rated this recipe b4 me, and they were still HORRIBLE. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just pulled these cookies out of the oven and they are perfect! I did make some modifications to the recipe (thank you everyone else for your suggestions!) I made a half batch with these adjustments: still used 1 egg, added 1/2 cup granulated sugar, and a tsp of vanilla extract. They turned out soft and flattened just enough. I can't wait until they dry to add the white chocolate and toasted coconut! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Paula this is not about the cookies,[but they are very good]. This is about your pumpkin cheesecake. WOW very very good. My family went crazy over it. Thanks for the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these cookies last year and everybody loved them. I really didn't notice the booboo in the receipe. The only thing that happened was that I burned the coconut in the oven twice and that wasn't the receipe, that was all me!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really hate nothing more then wasting precious time making something that turns out so horribly...You really shouldn't have to read thru the comments/reviews to see what modifications you need to make in order to make the dish properly...I even thought that I could salvage the cookies after I baked them, but unfortunately, many of them disintegrated (after they cooled) when I was attempting to move them to racks...Bottom line, these cookies really aren't worth the time/effort and waste of ingredients...Either remove the recipe or make the necessary modifications to the recipe and put it back up... item not reviewed by moderator and published
these cookies were very tasty! i didnt even know the network messed up the recipe so i made them as it says to and they turned out great! im planning on making them again tomorrow! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Why in the world does a big TV show like this botch up the cooks recipes. I'm sick of this, why do we have to change things around. What if your not a good cook and don't know how to change the recipe. Do you have to read every review to get the recipe right, that is not right. If I print the recipe and put it in my file, I'm not going to go back to the orginal recipe and read reviews,,,COME ON, ITS TERRIBLE. Paula don't feel bad, this happened to Giada, Ina and several very good cooks. Love your show by the way, I write it down while watching, no more going on line for recipes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
On first seeing this, I thought oh boy, Coconut Cookies. Printed it up and started reading the Comments! Sure glad I did! I put the two eggs in, added the exta white sugar ( 1 cup) and put it all together. Started with a medium size scoop, flattened them out. Too Big! Went to the small scoop, did not flatten and they spread out just fine. DO NOT COOK MORE THAN 10 MINS. No direction on how to melt the white choclate, so I put it in the micro for 6 mins, stirring after 3 mins. USE 50% POWER! GOOD LUCK! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was dry, flavourless, and a waste of time and food. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are some of the best cookies I ever tasted. I used 1 and 3/4 cup of butter and 2 cups of sugar. The walnut size is perfect. I roll them into balls and let them cook for exactly 10 mins. I brought them to work and ended up giving out this recipe many times. I see some people had troubles with them.....I think if you follow the steps exactly but add a bit more butter and sugar you will have a nice crispy sweet cookie and the topping is to die for!!!! Thanks Paula!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
When I watched her make these cookies, and then compared the show to the recipe, I knew mistakes had been made. First off, you need two eggs, NOT one, and you also need to include at least 1 cup of granulated sugar to supplement the 1/2 cup of brown sugar to hold these together. Making these adjustments, you'll have a good tasting, firm cookie. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thanks Paula! These cookies came out fabulous. I made them a little bit bigger than a walnut size and they came out perfect. Everyone in my family loved them.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used one more egg, uses half regular sugar and half brown sugar. I left out the rolled oats and put some white chocolate chips in the batter. The cookies came out moist and good. Nect time I make them I think I will try adding some pecan pieces to replace the rolled oats for a little more texture item not reviewed by moderator and published
Oh my, what is Paula making today - cookies!! Got my little pen out and with rapt attention wrote every ingredient and instruction down. Drove to the store thinking of how I was going to wow my family with another Paula Dean gem. So excited as I got every thing ready ! Measure , mix , and place! (Batter seemed a little dry , but Its Paulas recipe so on we go!) Oh joy the timer goes off !! Open the door and Walaaaaaaaaaa- what is that !!! Paula , love ya hon - but this was the worst cookie I ever tasted ( well not the worst- my neice made one that - well lets not go there) Cookie didnt flatten out , was too dry/salty and no sweetness ( white chocolate can only help so much!) . Thought I had written it down wrong or something , so threw out 1st batch and went online to print out recipe ( should have read the reviews!) .This time I even shifted the flour to make sure I didnt use too much!! Still horrible- let me put it this way the "human garbage disposal" in our family wouldnt even eat more than 1 bite!! After reading the reviews might try again later with the adjustments the other reviewers suggested! For those who say this is a great cookie- Please send me the recipe you have - maybe it is different from the one I have . Still love ya Paula but next time will definately read reviews first!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I usaually love all of Paula's recipes. But they came out very dry and no flavor. My kids wouldn't even eat them and they eat everything. Only cooked have the batch and threw the rest away. I wasted alot. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The cookies were delicious - however, like other reviews, they didn't flatten and they were crumble. Seemed a bit dry - but tasted amazing nonetheless. Next time I might add another egg or so.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these this Christmas season because one of my kids love coconut. The whole family enjoyed them. I used milk chocolate and they were great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cookies were incredibly dry, and really needed the white chocolate coating in order to stay together. I had to flatten them myself, they didn't flatten. That being said, they were DELICIOUS. I am going to try them with one more egg and a little more sugar as suggested by a few other reviewers and see if that helps them stay together more! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was very disappointed in these cookies. First off the flour was not listed as 2-1/2 cups. My recipe said 1-1/2 cups. They are flat and too soft. I baked them for over 10 minutes because they didn't look cooked. They puffed up in the oven but then went flat. They also don't have any taste. All I could taste was butter not the coconut at all. Very disappointed. Being a daughter of a pastry chef I have lots of baking expierience and I can tell you these cookies are not what there cracked up to be. I won't make them again and plus the expense of ingredients makes me mad when they don't come out right. item not reviewed by moderator and published
As I sit here munching on the plate filled with cookies from this recipe, I am surprised to hear some of the reviews...and I had the harder task where I cut the batch in half instead of a full batch! I would agree that the dough seemed a bit dry when I was mixing the batter, but they rendered cake-y and fluffy cookies for me. I did change the recipe where I dipped the cooled cookies in milk chocolate versus white, because I truly don't like white chocolate. The cookies didn't flatten out but I like them regardless since they look like little snow balls! I think I might try to adapt this recipe to make a Magic Cookie Bar COOKIE. With butterscotch chips and a bit of condensed milk. I plan on making these for Christmas and New Years! Happy Holidays! item not reviewed by moderator and published
When I printed this recipe years ago, the flour was only 1 1/2 cups and there was 1 cup of granulated sugar included, along with the 1/2 cup of brown sugar listed. Everything else was the same. These are a favorite of my family - try them again with the original ingredients and measurements! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cookies are like short bread cookies, so they're not your typical melt in your mouth cookie. I haven't had any problems with the recipe. I would suggest pressing the balls before baking. To me this cookie is great for holiday parties. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't know what happened, I followed the directions perfectly but they were so dry & salty, not sweet. Yuck, not impressed, had to throw them away. item not reviewed by moderator and published
What happen to these cookies??? The dry ingredience just seem to be too much for 1egg & 1 cup of butter!! When I cooked them they didn't flatten & they were so dry, they just crumbled. Did you get your recipe right? ? With most cookie recipes, that much flour you usually add 2 eggs. You need to re-do the recipe, it is no good the way that it is!! I have alot of wasted ingrediences, they are no good, I had to throw them away!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Followed suggesions by other reviewer and added an extra egg and extra sugar. First batch of cookies did not flatten. Second batch I flattened with a knife before baking. Their shape was better but the cookie itself is very bland and uninteresting. The only thing that saves this cookie is the white chocolate! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had read some of the other reviews and increased the brown sugar to about 3/4 cup and these are excellent cookies. Way to go Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these cookies 100% as per recipe and they were perfect! Not sure why so many reviews state that the recipe needs to be corrected by Paula or even altered for that matter. The cookies are not too moist, not too dry, just the right amount of sweetness and the texture is fabulous. And soooo easy to make! I have even made them with milk chocolate instead of white.....yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just finished baking these cookies, after reading several of the comments. So I added an extra egg and 1/4 cup of white sugar. The best cookie I have ever baked. Thanks, Paula. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made these cookies several times. I work as a secretary in a Public school. So to show my Teachers how much I appreciate them, I bake cookies. This is the favorite cookie! They ask me all the time "When are you going to bring more of those cookies"! Way to go Miss Paula. I give them an A+! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The first time I made these cookies was a disaster; they were too dry and crumbled easily. However, I tried it a second time and used one more egg and less baking soda, and oh my goodness, they were fabulous! These cookies reminded me a little of the traditional Greek wedding cookies, expect these were tastier! My mother now bakes these instead of her traditional cookies! Thank you Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had read many of the reviews that said that the cookies were not sweet enough for them. After having my friend taste the cookies, I don't prefer coconut, she said that they were sweet enough for her. I wonder if those who said they weren't sweet were using unsweetened coconut, I used sweetened coconut flakes, I know the recipe doesn't specify but this might be the reason for the lack of sweetness. If you only have unsweetened coconut, you can soak it in sugar water to make it sweet. The cookies were more ball like then flat like the picture, and were crumbly and brittle. item not reviewed by moderator and published
the oats? are those really necessary?i havnt tryed this recipe but im not very fond of oats item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these cookies yesterday. I read the reviews before making them. A lot of the reviews said the cookies wasn't very sweet and that is was dry. Many people suggested adding an extra egg and 1/2 cup sugar. I mixed all the ingredients and right away I could tell it was dry. I tasted the batter and it was bland. I added an extra egg, 1/2 cup of sugars, and 2/3 cup of white chocolate. The cookies came out great. I like my cookies soft, so I baked them for eight minutes instead of ten. Good luck, enjoy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I saw this recipe here, but I used the recipe from PaulaDeen.com. I brought the cookies to a 4th of July BBQ and they were gone in 10 minutes--everyone loves them--even people who didn't like coconut. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My daughter made these cookoes and I took them to work, they were a hit, they were telling me best cookies they ever had. Not to sweet, but the white chocolate made the cookie. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had already made these cookies when I read through most of the reviews. Most of them are WAY off. These were just sweet enough and my family LOVED them. Not really moist, but with the white chocolate, just the right balance. Will definitely make them again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these; they were dry, did not spread; couldn't work the oats into them; added extra vanilla but alas, alack nothing helped! Some ingredients is/are missing--taste was bland and Paula does not make bland food! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Somewhere whoever posted this recipe left things out. I saw Paula use white sugar? I made them and immediately knew after mixing it that something was wrong. I threw out the first batch and added an egg and 1/2 cup sugar to the remaining dough. OMG they were delicious then! I measured exactly right the first time as well. This time I think I will use equal parts brown sugar and white and definitely add the extra egg. Paula you need to fix this! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cookies were bad, bad, bad ... and I was so disappointed with these "White Chocolate-Coconut Cookies that Paul made and... not like her to make something like this and give the recipe out ... had to throw the whole batch out and what fell on the floor my dog gobbled up" she liked them"... dry, crumbly and tasteless and I followed the recipe to the "tee" ... the recipe went in the shredder ... sorry Paula ... like your other recipes thou with no problems! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were not very good. My kids would not even eat them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wish I hadn't been in such a rush to bake and had slowed down and thought to read the reviews of this recipe beforehand because I could have saved myself a ruined recipe. This recipe is absolutely terrible; the cookies have no flavor at all and the texture of a biscuit. I am incredibly disappointed. If Paula wer ehere, I would tell her she ought to be ashamed of herself. Now I know I shuld just stick to the oatmeal cookie recipe i KNOW is good and add coconut. If I had any desire to give this recipe another go, I'd try the other reviewers suggestions and add an egg and an extra 1/2c of sugar. item not reviewed by moderator and published
After reading all of these reviews, I decided to add 1/2 cup white cane sugar and one extra egg. Cookies flattened nicely and the flavor was great. I will make these unique cookies again! lesson learned: always read reviews first!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was looking for a different type of cookie to make for my family ... and these were better than I had hoped for. My specialty is the classic chocolate chip, but I think these may be the competition. I added 1/2c of finely chopped pecans and used reich chocolate ready made icing for dipping. They are melt in your mouth good. I will be making these more often. item not reviewed by moderator and published
After making the cookies I read the reviews. I wish I would have read them before I made them. My cookies, like alot of others, didn't flatten out and were very flaky and crumbly. BUT from the amount of butter VS sugar i could see that. The flavor was not what I expected either.I was not impressed at all with these cookies and this is the first time I have not been happy with a recipe from this sight. I also watched Paula make them on TV and both my daughters agreed that we needed to try them. Greatly saddened after making them. item not reviewed by moderator and published

After watching Paula make these on TV, I thought these were perfect to take in to the office Friday morning. Made the mistake of not reading these reviews first. The cookies were a disaster! They didn't flatten out and looked like tiny macaroons. They were salty and very dough-ish. The chocolate icing didn't help either. Needless to say I didn't share them with anyone - had to throw the whole batch away. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This cookies looked great. So I was looking forward to make them. But when reading the recipe and remembering how it went together on the show, it was a little different. Which might explain the mixed reviews on the web- site. On the show Paula added granulated sugar to the dry ingredients, but that is not listed in the recipe here. Hope this helps. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is amazing. My sister and I made these and they were so delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
What a horrible cookie. When I saw they were not spreading, I flatened them as well. Still, as all the others said...dry, crumbly. Even dipping them in the white chocolate couldn't help these poor cookies. I wish I would of read these reviews and never made them. My dog was the only one who liked them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
After reading the good and bad reviews, I decided to follow the recipe of those who had success with the cookie (2 1/4 c. flour). I followed the directions exactly, and the cookie did not flatten when baked, were not sweet enough (tasted salty), and were very dry and crumbly! Having some experience with baking cookies, I should have known that something was wrong with the recipe; standard cookie recipes call for at least 1 cup of brown and white sugar each! I was very disappointed, and ended up wasting time and throwing the cookies away. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I watched Paula make this cookie on TV and wrote down the recipe then. I made the recipe yesterday, and the cookies didn't flatten out as others mentioned. I flattened the rest of the batches with a spatula before baking. I used 2 1/4 cups flour and 1/2 c. brown sugar as the recipe here states (and the recipe I wrote down matched). The cookies are crumbly, have more of a shortbread texture, but were still good. Maybe a little dry, but the toasted coconut and white chocolate really make the cookies the correct sweetness. I would like to know if there is a corrected recipe because I do not see it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
You better not be on a diet!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I copied the recipe per Paula on her show and the recipe is correct on the web. They are a little dry and did not flatten out like hers. I thought it was because I used real butter and not margarine. I may try that next time. I put white chips and toasted coconut in the dough instead of on top. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Was very disapointed, not a good cookie flavor.Not a Paula Deen type of food. Not sweet, not enough BUTTER, and added vanillia sugar and butter to it.Did add some nuts to add flavor to it on the top. Measured everything out. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I watch Paula Deen make these cookies on t.v. She used a cookie scoop, so I did as well even though the receipe called for small walnut sized balls. The cookies didn't melt down into a round cookie at all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
People, we all know that Paula is not really cooking/baking on her shows. She will stand with her hand on the top of the stove indicating that it is not hot so the ovens are not really working. I envision a hord of background bakers preping her ingredients so she can just dump into a bowl. This recipe is not accurate; perhaps we should try to contact one of the background bakers. item not reviewed by moderator and published
In many, many recipes, what is listed online shows incorrect ingredients. Why don't we all stop copying Paula's recipes and do our own recipes---even if we are from "up north". Great idea,huh!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was a big hit. The only problem I had was the cookie was not flattening out during cooking. I pressed them down about halfway through using a drinking glass. They were perfect. I will make these again and again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cookies are simply perfect! There are light, not too sweet and easy to make. The second time I made them, I add one cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips, I grounded the ? C of coconut flakes to obtain a finer texture and I used almond extract instead of vanilla extract. Some reviews mentioned different ingredients ratio and a lack of sweetness; These persons probably took the recipe from this website: http://recipecircus.com/. As for the lack of sweetness, the right amount of white chocolate and coconut flakes on top give the perfect balance of sweetness to these cookies. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My mother and I tried this recipe for our christmas cookies this year. We followed it exactly as it appears (2.5 cups flour and 1/2 cup brown sugar) and the cookies were great. We had read the reviews and tried one cookie in a ball and one flattened out as a test. The one in the ball doesn't look like Paula's but it was easier to dip. These cookies were not dry at all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've taken these to several parties and so many people have asked for the recipe. They look enticing with the white chocolate and coconut, but the taste is what counts the most. Everyone who says they don't really care for coconut even likes them! Thank you so much for this. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The chocolate-coconut cookies are very dry - and not very tasty! Dissappointed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This cookie was very dry. I made sure I didn't miss any ingredients. The walnut shape of the cookie prevented the insides from getting done in some of them. I expected them to flatten out like other cookies do but this remained round. I flatten out the remaining ones to make sure the centers cooked. Very disappointing. item not reviewed by moderator and published

So after reading everyone's rather negative reviews, I decided to try to recipe with a couple of changes. - an extra half cup of regular cane sugar - a half cup of white chocolate chips - 3/4 cup of macadamia nuts - 2 eggs instead of 1 The cookies came out moist, but still fluffy, tender and the oatmeal cooked up deliciously in the cookies. The cookie was sweeter but not too sweet. Absolute hit at work! item not reviewed by moderator and published
C'mon Paula, give up the secret of these cookies! Made with the 2 1/4 c flour (and 1/2 c br sugar only) they are dry and crumbly and have a shortbread texture & taste. In the episode Paula mentions that the dough should be like that of an oatmeal cookie--on the moist side. This dough is not moist and does not flatten out like her cookies in the show. Maybe the correct flour amt is somewhere btw 1.25 and 2.25 cups--or maybe something else is missing entirely. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am wanting to try these cookies, but the reviews are all conflicting. Would someone send me the correct recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I wish I read these reviews before making these cookies! I thought I did something wrong until I read these reviews. I just saw Paula make these on Saturday and followed the recipe exactly. It was a very dry, crumbly mixture and something is definitely missing from the recipe, I'm not sure if it's too much flour and not enough sugar??? My cookies would not flatten, I had to press them myself. Very disappointed that I wasted these ingredients, once I saw how the cookies turned out I didn't bother melting the white chocolate chips-I'll save those for another recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love Paula Deen, but these cookies are too dry. I read the reviews, thought the recipe had been fixed by the food network, but it did not flatten out, I did that myself. Disappointed as I made them for company. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I guess I should have checked here first, but I've never had a recipe that didn't work out. I used 2-1/4 cups of flour and the 1/2 cup of brown sugar. These never flattened out. I thought perhaps my ingredients were old and I bought fresh flour and soda and baking powder and still nothing. What a shame. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe, as printed, has got to be wrong. 1 1/4 c. flour is not enough for the amount of sugar and shortening. The cookies were a flat, disappointing mess the first baking. Second time around, I used the amount of flour I felt would be right (2 1/4 c.)with satisfactory results. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy enough to make, was a little concerned cookie dough so dry... Formed balls for baking...but cookies never flattened out on own in oven...had to pat flat after baking. But they are a wonderful tasting cookie. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank you Susan for the correction. The cookies turned out perfectly! Next time I'll double the recipe since it's a pretty small batch. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Now reading the other reviews I see that the recipe was not accurate. I was pretty frustrated when I attempted to make a batch, and it came out all wrong. Then I thought that maybe the temperature was off, So then I tried a second batch and it came out horrible as well. Food Network should really get this accurate, cause it LOOKED delicious on tv, but it was atrocious when I made it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had to give this recipe a five since I have high hopes. In the meantime I have emailed the Food Network and asked for the correct recipe.

I tried the cookie recipe and the following corrections were made for the recipe. Both sugars should be added and the flour amount should be 2-1/4 cups, not 1-1/4 cups. After I made these corrections to the recipe, they were great. Hope this helps. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Didn't read the reviews and followed the recipe only to get pancake cookies. Is it hard to reread a recipe for accuracy? item not reviewed by moderator and published
On the show Paula used 2 1/4 cups of all purpose flour not 1 1/4 as listed in the printed recipe. Also, Paula used 1/2 cup of brown sugar and no white sugar, yet the recipe calls for 1 cup of white sugar. Paula did say "Now we're going to take our dry ingredients and slowly add that to our creamed butter and SUGARS (plural). Would someone at the Food Network please review and correct this recipe? Thank you! item not reviewed by moderator and published
