Reviews for Chewy Macaroons
"I make these on a regular basis for my sons' and daughter who require a gluten-free diet; however, my other son and daughter who have normal diets also love them and request them on a regular basis!"
"These are good but they are more like meringue cookies than macaroons. I was looking for more of a traditional macaroon, but they were still quite tasty."
"I love this recipe and have been making it for many years. I think they're best if you lightly toast the coconut before adding to the egg whites/sugar. It gives them a wonderful flavor but they're good either way. I also use parchment paper instead of greased baking trays. They come off so much easier and never get dark or burned on the bottom."
"sounds like one i am looking for,just wish it could be copied!!"
