    Wildflour's Note:

    These are the best macaroons I've ever made! Slightly crunchy on the outside; rich, moist and chewy on the inside! Just the way we like them! The original recipe was off the back of the bag of Mounds brand coconut, but the baking time was off a bit as well as the amount of coconut required to roll them in. So here's how I made them! ENJOY! They are really good!!! Hope you try them! :)

      Everyone in my family loved these...these are a couple of things I changed: I used coconut oil instead of butter...4 cups of coconut were mixed into the batter/dough...I used vanilla instead of almond flavor...and I dipped the cooled cookie into dark chocolate. Simply excellent recipe!!!
