    These are easy and delicious! I substituted no calorie sugar (Erythritol) instead of the real thing. I got 21 nice size cookies @ 26 calories each. I did chill the bowl and beaters plus turned the oven off when cookies were browned and left them in for a couple of hours. - 12/22/08

    This is a great treat! I have made them a little different by sprinkling dry (flavored, sugar-free) gelatin powder on top of them before putting into the oven. Rasperberry gelatin has been favorite at our house - - 6/16/09

    These are great. I followed the recipe except I baked them for 15 minutes then turned the oven off and let them sit for 2-3 minutes. Also, make sure you grease the pan well because they will stick. I can't wait for my friends to try them tonight. Thanks for sharing! - 4/10/09

    These are fantastic.... I also used almond instead of vanilla and used splenda instead of sugar. - 4/3/09

    Awesome! For a chocolate fix, add 1 TBSP of cocoa powder (adds 1 calorie per cookie). Also, instead of regular coconut, I toasted it before adding to the mix. These are great. I agree about the cooking spray - get them off the tray quickly too. - 8/2/09
