Soft, chewy, wonderful! These are so simple to make. Very fast. And they are very good. I love coconut and will make these a lot! Thanks Charlotte J!

Fast, easy and delicious. I used half the recipe to fill very lightly greased eggcups, popped out on to cookie sheet - nice little domes - put a half glace-cherry on the top of each - and gave them an extra minute or so in the oven,. VERY popular with the kids (and others!).

I made these as a surprise birthday gift for my Stepdad. He loves macaroons and thought these were the best he had ever tasted. I found them to be very easy to prepare and tasted great. I will make this macaroon recipe my standard now.

Do I have to spell it out for you?? Y-U-M-M-Y. Crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside and they couldn't be any easier if you bought them. I'm not sure how many I got from this recipe, as they seem to disappear as soon as I set them on the cooling rack. Plus I couldn't help taking a few (dozen) nibbles of the "dough." I was kind of concerned as I was mixing this as to how well they'd stick together and how crumbly they'd be. Although putting them on the cookie sheet can be a teeny-weensy bit finicky and I would recommend letting them set for a moment before removing them from the cookie sheet, they turn out abosultely, unbelievably perfect. I used unsweetened coconut, by the way - the recipe does not specify and they were plenty sweet. I also used wildheart's Sweetened Condensed Milk (#22881) rather than store-bought, which worked perfectly. Thank you so much for posting these- I will make them often for sure!! (Lucky for me they're not even that bad for you as far as cookies go!!)

These were great! Simple. I doubled the recipe because one can of the milk was almost 1 1/3 cup...Pile them high and cool on baking sheet. Thanks.

So easy and so good! They are crisp on the outside, but nice and chewy in the middle. I was skeptical about the ingredients at first, but now I'm a believer and will be making these time and time again! :)

They were easy and if you like sweet they are the ones to make. I just don't like the too sweet macaroon. They were the last to go off the tray.

Who knew?? These are so easy and tasty it's almost embarassing when people go "mmmmm..these are nice". Definitely have to like coconut to truly get into these. 'Stick in your teeth' fun.

**thank you**- an easier and more fool-proof method than the one with egg whites. i like to cover them in melted chocolate- choc. chips & a bit of milk in the microwave... - dee-lish
