I can't really recommend these cookies, as another reviewer mentioned, they aren't macaroons at all, and miss a lot of the texture that makes those so special. They flattened out too much and easily break apart. Find yourself a good TRUE macaroon recipe and just add chopped maraschinos to it and you'll have a much better result. I also like to sprinkle red decorating sugar (the coarse kind) on top to give it some extra visual appeal and crunch.P.S. I tried to give it 1-star but the website for some reason simply won't let me go any lower than 2 stars. Guess they don't want any low reviews on their recipes here.

These were a hit with my husband and son! Granted, they're not true macaroons, but if you get past the name, they're *very good* coconut cookies. :-) I toasted my coconut before adding it to the cookie dough, and I added coconut extract along with the almond extract to intensify the coconut flavor. Also, I think they would be good with chopped pecans added.
More of a cookie, however super delicious!
I followed this recipe TO A T, and these cookies, NOT MACAROONS, these cookies came out adequate at best. Do not follow this recipe and expect a luscious cherry flavored macaroon. These instead tasted more like a sugar cookie with a hint of coconut. Bad recipe.
I found this recipe when my son had colic. I had to eliminate dairy from my diet to prevent it, and this was one of the best non-dairy cookie recipes I found.
