Reviews for First Place Coconut Macaroons
"some recipes call for condensed milk and are too sweet. This recipe is perfect. Light and the coconut flavor wins out!!"
"Really easy to make and taste great. After I made the first batch my husband looked at me and said can you make more? He wanted less sugar in it this time cause he said it was too sweet."
"Yummy and supper easy to make. Will definitely make this recipe again!"
"Super easy! I melted semi sweet chocolate chips in microwave, then dipped bottoms of macaroons after they cooled.. Beautiful and taste like Mounds candy, but in a cookie."
"This is an accurate review. Made exactly as recipe was written. 5 stars!!!! Super easy to make and a fabulous tasting macaroon.This one is a keeper!!!!Thank you so much for this recipe. I can see why you won 1st place.Awesome!!!!"
"The first time I made this recipe It didn't come out too well then I discovered that the recipe has omitted a step. You have to beat the egg whites to a soft peak before you add them to the coconut, then the recipe came out great."
"These are a favorite of my 9 year old son (I use less sugar for him, he still loves them!)."
"These came out perfect. They did not run, I even whipped the egg whites not knowing not to. I did use a silpat liner on my pan maybe that's why they didn't run? They are lovely morsels!! I did only get 14 cookies though. Will double next time."
"These were too sweet for me."
"Anyone looking for something quick and easy to do with those 2 yolks? Whisk them in a microwave-safe bowl, add a tiny drop or two of cooking sherry (optional) a knob of butter, a tbls or two of milk, whisk and microwave for 30 seconds; whisk again and microwave for another 15-20 seconds until the desired consistency is reached. On two halves of toasted, buttered muffin or bagel that makes a terrific breakfast or lunch for one. I've done it - you'll like it.The macaroons, by the way, are perfect and so quick and easy to make, I'll be having that scrambled egg with 2 yolks often. ?"
