Reviews for Homemade Coconut Macaroons
"In order to use the whole can of sweetened condensed milk, I made a 2nd recipe and halved the rest of the ingredients. I did replace the vanilla with almond extract. I also placed 1/4 of a maraschino cherry on top of each cookie. My husband loves macaroons and loves this recipe."

"I have made these for YEARS as my husband loves them. I use parchment paper on my cookie sheet, no greasing-much easier to remove to cool! I also chill the dough for an hour before scooping; also helps a lot."
"DELICIOUS! Easy! What more can I say? It's now a favorite in my house."
"Love these, I dipped the bottoms in melted dark choc. even better!!!!"
"Way too easy to make, way too delicious too! I especially love them warm and fresh from the oven, but they keep extremely well also."
"I oopsed the recipe and accidentally added the entire can of condensed milk (14 oz,). To make up for it I just threw in another whole bag (2 and 2/3 cups) of coconut. Left the rest the same and they still came out awesome. Double the recipe with no extra work. Great recipe Sabrina thanks for sharing."
