    Hi, I would love to make this recipe but do not eat eggs. Can this be made without eggs in the dough?? Would really appreciate a response. Thanks

    Hi! This recipe looks so delicate but so yummy. I would like to make it, is the unsweetened coconut milk or cream? Thanks again for posting this recipe.

    These are very delicious cookies, but it takes a lot of time to construct them. I found unsweetened coconut in a large grocery store next to the all-natural baking items (e.g. carob), but you can also buy sweetened coconut and omit the sugar in the filling recipe, if you don't mind the filling being more sweet.

    This recipe was a disaster to put together. The dough was impossible to work with. Don't attempt this - at least not in the summer, like I did.

    I loved this cookie. I did not find unsweetened Coconut therefore, made this without any Coconut. It was very tasty and easy recipe to follow. Thank you to the lady who had submitted this recipe and her grandmother! Thank you to dear Martha as well for her wonderful recipies and cookbooks. I have made many wonderful things from her cookbooks, her cookie book as well as visiting this website. Thank you Martha! :)

    beijing, suzstg and trudy-d, .....I have learned a lot just reading the comments from you ladies. Thanks for your views. I have a question, could you use regular cocconut flakes and chop them up a little finer in a grinder or food processor?
