Chewy Coconut Macaroons Recipe

Chewy Coconut Macaroons Recipe

These chewy cookies are my husband's favorites, so he requests them often. I like to make the macaroons on cold winter days and keep them in an airtight bowl on the kitchen counter. They never last long!—Peggy Key, Grant, Alabama

"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."

"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"

"I'm not a huge fan of coconut...but these are amazing! They are perfectly chewy and not too sweet. Followed the recipe except I used only 1 teaspoon of almond extract and that added just enough flavor. I melted semi-sweet chocolate chips and dipped some cookies and drizzled others. These are very pretty cookies that I would be proud to serve to guests."

"These were very good and easy. Mine did run a little in the oven, but nothing that prevented my family from eating all of them!!! Will be making again."
