I baked a batch of these today to add to my Christmas Cookies this year. I made as directed except I did not add the coconut,(my family does not care for it) but added 1 cup of dried cranberries instead, along with the white chocolate chips. I did not have coconut extract, so added 1 tsp. almond extract and really liked the flavor. The only other change I made was not ice them. We do not care for sweet frosting, so after scooping out 1 tsp. of batter, I rolled them into balls and then rolled half of them in red sugar and the other half in green sugar, then baked as directed. I think rolling them into balls helped them keep their shape. Others reviewers said they spread out too much, but mine came out the same shape as in the picture. After cooling I put into containers with wax paper between layers and will freeze until Christmas. Kids had a sample and loved them.
