    LOVE THESE! Perfectly crisp on the outside & chewy on the inside. I made them with hazelnuts instead but still amazing. For the people who said they were dry, I baked them at the least amount of time the recipe said & that was enough (for my oven). Maybe that'll work for you too.

    Turned out really well! I left out the coconut and nuts because I didn't have them and the taste was still good.

    Delicious! I did not have the coconut so I just added more chocolate chips and they came out great! Crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle!

    I’ve made these multiple times. They are my go to cc recipe. I usually use half the amount of sugar and use a little less cc. I like to use semi-sweet and Ghiradelli 60% cacao mixed. They are so good!

    Amazing can’t stop eating them. I subbed out he walnuts for sunflower seeds due to an allergy but these are so good!
    I used granola and walnuts instead of oats and pecans. And added extra chocolate chips. They came out good. I wasn't a fan of rotating the cookies, so next time I will see if it makes a difference or not.

    I followed the recipe exactly and the cookies turned out great! The texture had just the right amount of crispness yet chewy in the middle.

    This is our new favorite cookie recipe. The adjustments are the baking time and moving between the racks; we do not prefer a crunchy cookie so I leave them to bake at the lower rack.

    Followed the directions but didn't have pecans. They were really good without them, but I could tell they would work really well if I had them. Next time! Husband approved. ;-)

    This is now our favorite cookie recipe! I leave out the nuts and make one batch with chocolate chips and one with raisins to keep the kids happy. They are a hit!
