      I had a couple of egg yolks left after making meringues, and found this to be the ideal recipe to use them in, quick, simple and delicious as well,,,can't go wrong.

      Wonderful! Followed the recipe exactly and they came out great -- they tasted a lot like macaroons. Delicious!

      I made this exactly as written and it was excellent! I used the recommended 1/4 cup sugar (ran regular sugar through my food processor till powdery). They weren't real sweet, which is nice for a change, and allowed the coconut to really shine through! Added crushed, slivered almonds to the second batch, which turned out to be an excellent touch! Great with tea or coffee!
