"The only reason this recipe gets more than one star is because they tasted good. At least what I could salvage. I used parchment paper and didn't read that it needed to be sprayed, so into the garbage went 36 cookies (I made the mistake of making a double batch). Second pan went in on a silpat and third on parchment paper sprayed with cooking spray and most of those I also had to throw out. The cookies stuck to the utensil I was using to remove the macaroons from the cookie sheet. I used both plastic and metal spatulas and generously sprayed non-stick spray after attempting to peel the cookies off the cookie sheet but the cookies were like glue. They stuck to everything. Even the knife I used to scoot the cookies off the spatula - which was also covered in non-stick spray.

So, save yourself frustration as well as expensive ingredients and use another recipe. On the positive side, they tasted good."

"Sorry ladies. When I submitted the recipe, I specifically stated that the parchment needs to be sprayed with cooking spray prior to baking, but for some reason someone at Taste of Home failed to include that part. Deena"

"The parchment paper was impossible to work with in this recipe. The cookies stuck so badly to it, that I had to just pull the top part of the cookie off to use it, leaving the entire bottom half on the sheet. I have not yet tried the end results, but I would not make them this way again. I don't know how simply greasing the cookie sheet would effect the cookie, but it might be worth a try."

"I made these for a meeting and 2 women immediately wanted the recipe. They can be somewhat sticky to work with. I rolled mine instead of "molding" them on the tray! They were great! Thanx ~"
