THESE COOKIES earned me a first-place ribbon at the county fair. They remain my husband's favorites—whenever I make them to give away, he always asks me where his batch is! I especially like the fact that the recipe makes a small enough batch for the two of us to nibble on. —Penny Ann Habeck Shawana, Wisconsin

These cookies are absolutely delicious! They are extremely easy to make on a moments notice. I like to half dip them in Wilton microwavable chocolate. Everyone loves them and they look beautiful as well.

Worked out perfect as is, I used shredded coconut, as that is what I had. I did microwave a couple handfuls of chocolate chips checking at 20 sec intrivals and stirring until just melted. Than dipped some of the maccaroons and places them on parchment. Tried to let them cool, but we ate them before that could happen. They are delis with or without chocolate. I would recommend using less sugar if your coconut is sweetened, or you are using lots of chocolate.

These cookies were easy to make and tasted good too. They turned out perfectly. Some of the reviews said they were runny. Mine were not. However, if egg whites stand too long, they do get runny. Maybe these cookies were mixed up, but not baked right away?

Best Macaroons Ever!

Found these in my TOH Cookbook and decided to make them for my BF as part of an anniversary gift (he sees baking for someone as a real declaration of love). He and everyone else who has had any has told me they were the best they'd ever tasted. Even my roommate, who doesn't like coconut, loves them!

The store bought ones don't even rate compared to these.

Must Try!
