These are perfectly perfect!!!!! I've made a lot of coconut macaroons in my day - searching for just the right texture... just the right recipe. Well, happily, my search is over! These are what I've been looking for. My fellow coconut loving family have all demanded I keep bringing THIS recipe - no other will do now!!! They are soft and a bit chewy - perfect flavor - pure delight!!! I don't really care for almond extract though - so I used the recipe exactly, except that I used vanilla instead. The almonds in this are wonderful though!!! I dipped just the bottoms in melted Ghiradelli (sp?) semi sweet chocolate. Perfection!!!!

Yummy recipe! I made just as directed with the exception of the almonds. I didn't have any and wanted to make them NOW!! So glad I did! DELICIOUS! I used my small cookie scoop and baked them for 15 minutes at 325 in a convection oven! Simply divine!! Will be making for my Christmas treat boxes this year! Thanks for the wonderful and EASY......with a capital E recipe!!

Very tasty-- a bit too sweet though. I'll try it with unsweetened coconut next time. We liked these a lot.

Easy, beautiful, delicious! Once cooled, I dipped the bottoms- some in melted semi-sweet chocolate and some in melted white chocolate and let them cool on wax paper. Great recipe!

It's nice not to have to whip up the egg whites since I don't have the proper equiptment for that. Great macaroons.

Oh yum! I'm afraid I'm going to gobble them all up! So good. I separated into batches and made one plain, one with craisins, and one with chocolate chips. Simply yum. Used small muffin cups. NEXT time I'm going to add an almond in the center and coat with hard shell chocolate. Better than Almond Joy's.

WONDERFUL! Easy, delicious, chewy, mmmm! Didn't have almond extract, so I used vanilla. Once they cooled, I dipped the bottoms in chocolate and let set on wax paper. Yum!
