    Chose this recipe after looking at loads on internet. This is so easy and so perfect. I also drizzled chocolate on them - yummy. They were intended for the grandchildren tomorrow but I may have to make another batch. In fact they are so quick and easy the grandchildren could do them for me!

    I loved how easy and fast these were to make. However, mine only browned on the bottom and were very sponge-like, more like a cake consistency.

    This is a good recipe. I like less sugar so I added it last and slowly and I only added 2T. They were great! I used half almond and half vanilla extract and dipped them in melted 85% chocolate. These are great if you are trying to eat healthy because you won't mess up the batch by adding less sugar and they are still sweet because of the coconut. I also like that it took about 2 min of prep. :)

    These macaroons turned out wonderfully! For less than 10 minutes work, you can make a yummy little treat that looks so pretty on a cookie tray. I also like that I usually have all of the ingredients on hand. I didn't bother with a photo as the one that you posted was so pretty. Made for Fall PAC 2011. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    Too easy, and quite impressive. I added a dash of ginger and used half the sugar. (never noticed my coconut has ? sugar on the ingredients) These chewy little goodies will be a regular indulgence now.
