I used the stand mixer to make these and I think I may have over-mixed them a bit. The cookies in the cookbook photo are glossy, while mine are not. They also turned out cakey and very firm. The flavor was very good, but I think the texture may be off . I've done this with brownies before, too. The next time I make them, I will try mixing them by hand, as the recipe instructs.
And yes, I will make them again. They were a big hit with my tasters, who described them as brownie cookies. Once cooled, the first thing that hits you is brownie, followed by a pronounced coconut flavor. I think if I get the texture right next time, they will be even better.
*Yes, I have some exciting hobbies!
