these were too almondy and they had kind of a strange texture. I will not make these again

I followed the recipe as written and was delighted. I've never made macaroons but they are very easy. It's a very wet dough. I used a 18/8 cookie scoop and got 11 beautiful cookies. Lastly, I used parchment paper. Thanks for posting!

The quintessential macaroon. They're like fluffy coconut clouds on the inside, crunchy and sweet on the outside. Exactly what I was searching for! I did use 1 3/4 cups coconut instead just to use up the last of the bag and am glad I did. Next time I might drizzle some dark chocolate over the top for a change, but this macaroon really doesn't need any extra flavor.
