Reviews for Quick Coconut Macaroons
"This recipe, minus the wheat flour, was my most favorite, actually only, childhood cookie since I couldn't eat wheat ! Alternative was frosting on Rye-crisp ?. I still love these macaroons!!"
"I found them dry, but will try them again. Maybe I will have better luck. They were tasty though."
"This has a better texture for me than most of the other recipes I have tried!!! The only change I made was to dip the bottoms in dark chocolate that I melted with a bit of coconut oil to smooth it out!!! My new favorite!!!"
"Nice and easy, and delicious! Will try dipping these in melted chocolate next time!"
"Soooo easy and delicious!!!"
"Awesome! Made these last year too. Big hit. This year I am putting a Hershey Kiss on each one when they come out of the oven... kinda like a mounds bar only with milk chocolate.... Easy Peasy to make!"
"A snap to make and our kids loved them, a nice peanut-free cookie they can take in their lunches to school"
"Amazingly delicious & easy macaroon recipe. It's now a favorite at our house!"
"Delicious! Easy to make! They get rave reviews every time I make them."
"Great cookie and very easy!"
"I have sweetened coconut. I can't find a recipe that says sweetened instead of just flaked. should i just cut down on sugar??"
"these macaroons were ok but don't hold a candle to the best macaroons i've ever had. if you've never had Danny Macaroons, i suggest you try those out and then compare them to these.... once you do, you'll see what i mean. these were ok, but definitely not the best."
"I included these in goodie gift bags I made last Christmas, and my mom asked me if I was going to make them again this year. They're crispy, yet chewy, and so easy to make."
"Don't get me wrong, these are good macaroons considering that the recipe is so quick & easy - but I grew up eating "real" macaroons made with egg whites. For that reason, these were just a little disappointing..."
"LOVE THEM!!! My Dad made these for a Family Block Party...They where the 1st sweet item gone. We should have printed copies of the recipe . Everyone wanted it. We told them to go to the TOH website. Nothing like something yummy!!"
"These macaroons are delicious & sooo easy to make! Even better drizzled with a little dark chocolate!"
"These were some wonderful cookies to make, and very tasty."
"I love these moist macaroons. So easy and so good."
"I tried these hoping for an amazing macaroon recipe and was disapointed,they were okay but not that great the bottoms get hard and the taste isn't the best..."
