Watch the size egg you use! After I mixed all ingredients, the batter was very runny. I noticed I had used jumbo eggs (that's all we had at the time). The recipe does not say what size eggs to use, but obviously not jumbo. I added more coconut to the runny batter and the macaroons turned out great. Next time, I'll use smaller eggs. Perhaps some clarification on the size of eggs to use would help.
Followed directions, as written, and everything turned out perfectly! We dipped them in chocolate ganache To add to the yum! Will make them again and again!
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?
