I love coconut and these macaroons are very soft and sweet and chewy. This is my second recipe for this cookie and I just can't get enough! The trick to getting that soft chewy perfect macaroon is to really whip the egg whites. The first time I made these they flattened out abit so I adjusted the coconut and added another 1/2 cup just to give it abit more chewiness and baked it abit longer to crisp the outside while the middle was nice a chewy. But please adjust to your tastes.
