I didn't change the recipe at all but now that I've had them I will definitely make again and add nuts or chocolate chips. They taste like sugar cookies with more texture and the coconut flavor is subtle but noticeable.
Per the directions, I didn't just spoon them onto the baking sheet. I rolled mine into balls about 1.25 inches wide and slightly flattened them with my fingers. I also baked them for 10 minutes.
