Chewy Coconut Macaroons
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 20 min./batch
I made the Chewy Coconut Macaroons and they tasted terrible! To be fair, I gave some to 2 friends and asked them for their honest opinion. Neither friend liked them either! I was very disappointed because normally Taste of Home recipes are good. I wouldn't even give them a 1 star rating.
I'm a huge taste of home fan but this one missed the mark for me. I followed the recipe. They did not run during baking although the batter seemed very thin. The finished cookies literally tasted like coconut and flour.
I want to try this recipe....can it be made using regular Sweetened Condensed Milk as apposed to fat free?
What could I replace with almond extract??
These were a huge hit at the party we had. They were so easy. Love the sweet coconut flavor! I will be making these again.
These were a bit hit at this week's family dinner. Everyone likes chocolate so I placed a Hershey's Kiss on top of each macaroon while they were cooling. I use a cookie scoop to drop the mixture onto parchment paper. No messy hands and each cookie is the same size. I used 1 teaspoon rum extract instead of the almond extract.
These are very easy and everyone's favorite! My family often requests these. My sister will not share these with ANYONE!!!
I was so excited to try these but my family didn't like them and requested not to make them again. The texture was unpleasantly chewy, not at all like a typical macaroon. I may try one more time just to see if it was a fluke that they didn't turn out but I was disappointed in this first round.
Those that aren't sure about almond flavoring. Try vanilla flavoring as substitute. Most people love this flavoring in cookies cakes and pies.
Very easy to make and very chewy, yum! I added a handful of frozen raspberries before baking and drizzled with white chocolate. They look beautiful too
