"These macaroons are delicious. After baking and cooling, I dipped the bottom in melted chocolate. Decadent!"

"While my Boyfriend loves this recipe, I found that making them was harder than I thought. Mine did not turn out like the picture and I was a bit frustrated with it."

"I loved these cookies and if you cook them just right, they have a crispy coconut shell and a chewy center, which is perfect (and they stick to the pan if you don't cook them long enough). I used fat free sweetened condensed milk to make them more diet-friendly so I wouldn't feel guilty downing 5 or 6 in one sitting!"

"I made these for a dessert party I had and they were a favorite!! I didn't baked them the full 10 minutes so they would be extra chewy. I'm making them again for Father's Day. I love recipies like this that taste like a lot more work than they are!!!"
