Soft Coconut Macaroons

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Missy Wright

These are soft yummie cookies. Not like traditional macaroons, they are different in a delightful way.

Just the texture I was looking for! These are soft and chewy, just like my old recipe (which I can't find). To me, these are traditional macaroons. Other recipes call for beaten egg whites which yield more of a meringue texture. I omitted the almonds and used vanilla instead of almond extract, just personal preference. All family members agreed they were great and they very easy to make. Thank you!
