    I was looking to make some macaroons like the ones my mum always makes. I just made these and they're good although I found them to be too sweet. I put some plain greek yogurt in to make them more gooey (that's how we like them in my house) and a little less sweet and they turned out nicely. I think next time I will half the sugar.

    I made these for my cookie giving Christmas 2008. I found them to be much too sweet for me. Next time I may try it with 1/2 the amt of sugar and see what happens.

    Easy, creamy, delicious. Best part, DS hates coconut. He ate two before I decided to tell him he was eating coconut! The rest are mine, all mine!!!!! Wicked, maybe I will put coconut in everything from now on. Seriously, this will be a great recipe for summer when it is too hot to turn the oven on. Thanks for posting. Made for PAC, Spring 2008

    These taste GREAT! That being said, mine don't look like the picture. My "liquid" stayed fairly liquid when I was scooping them out onto the waxed paper. They still seem to be setting up fine though. They just look like they are sitting in a chocolate puddle! lol No one here will care. I think maybe I put a smidge too much milk in. I didn't measure all that well. Thanks for sharing!


I am a stay at home mom of six(yes six!)kids ranging in age from 12 to 1 1/2 years of age. So as you can imagine my life is can be quite hectic and making dinner can somewhat difficult. Pleasing everyone pretty much never happens so I have stopped trying. I loved baking before I had children and I am trying to get back to it now that I don't have any infants in the house. Thanks to my friend Saturn I have joined this site and my fiance has stopped complaining about having the same things all the time(my kids are picky and aren't as happy with her). <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg"> <img src="http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/Other/tagforpage1.jpg"> <img src=http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/Banners/Photo_Video_577111733_orig.jpg> <img src=http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff45/ruffle-butt/bswap1.jpg> <img src="http://img171.imageshack.us/img171/5249/bookmarkmagnetswapapr20vs1.jpg">
