Coconut Cookies

This is the first time I am trying this recipe. It turned out well. In course of preparation I did a mistake. The recipe requires baking the cookies for 15minutes. When I finished the first batch, I knew something was wrong, but couldn't source the problem. I placed the second batch in oven and when it was 10 minutes I saw the mistake. Last time when I used the oven I used it in toast mode. I have forgot to switch it to bake mode and now I have been toasting the cookies instead of baking them. The cookies should come crisp but it was very soft. The third batch was baked and the result was great melting cookies. What shall I do with the toasted cookies? I again baked them for 10 minutes and they became crisper. So now I learnt my lesson. Never assume anything while baking. Check that the mode is set to your requirement.
