I have a recipe that calls for coconut flakes but I have 2 bags of organic coconut I was hoping to use. Does it matter if it's not sweetened? I was hoping the sugar in the cookies would make it sweet enough....

If I were you, I would use unsweetened coconut. The only time I use sweetened coconut is when a recipe specifically mentions its use.
