    This is the 1st time that I attempt to make pyramid cookies. Does it matter if I leave mixture in fridge for more than a hour?

    Contrary to what Martha said, you can use sweetened coconut but you have to reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup instead of 1 3/4 cup. A cup of sweetened shredded coconut has around 1/2 cup of sugar.

    I had some problems with the baking proces, my pyramids were too big (they were just melting) so I had to take them out again and make smaller ones. It turned out all right and they tasted great ! Next time I'm going to skip the chocolate (I don't like pure chocolate so much).

    I am making the pyramids for a VBS this week. Any suggestions on how to make such lovely pyramids? Mine are close, but not quite.

    To rosein miami: My mother used to make something like this and shaped them using an egg cup. Certainly easier than shaping them into pyramids and they tasted great.

    Is it necessary to make these shapes in order for them to bake correctly?? I would be just as happy if they were not so hard to shape!

    These make great Passover treats, and how much more appropriate could pyramids be?! My kids will love making these and eating them as well.

    i make these every year at xmas time. I use sweetened coconut because no one carries unsweetened where i live. I add about 1/4 c. of sugar instead of what is stated. I also don't make the quantity listed above. I have a version of the recipe that is smaller. These are a favourite among my family and friends!

    does anyone know if using sweetened coconut will ruin them?
