Really, really good. Not too sweet. I used dry shredded unsweetened coconut and they still turned out great!

Thank you for a really nice recipe! My little brother is allergic to gluten and dairy. He LOVES macaroons, but usually they have condensed milk in them. So, I was very happy to find this recipe!! And it definitely didn't disappoint. The macaroons came out perfectly light and fluffy after only 15 minutes. :)

Barb, what a wonderfully tasty little cookie and was probably the easiest cookie I've EVER made! I had some coconut I wanted to use up in the pantry and I couldn't have found a better recipe to use it in. DELICIOUS!!! I used large egg whites so I had no problem with my cookies being dry. As a matter of fact the egg white kind of ran out a bit around the edges. I got 13 (about 3 or 4 small bite sized) cookies out of my batch. I didn't want to make them to big for fear they would not get done in the middle before the edges got to brown. For anyone that likes macaroons I highly recommend this recipe. Thanks for posting.
