These coconut macroon cookies earned me a first-place ribbon at the county fair. They remain my husband's favorites—whenever I make them to give away, he always asks me where his batch is! I especially like the fact that this coconut macaroon recipe makes a small enough batch for the two of us to nibble on. —Penny Ann Habeck, Shawana, Wisconsin

"I wish I could show you a picture of how beautiful these came out! Followed the recipe exactly using large eggs, not XL, and decided to just do an even dozen. They baked for 24 minutes at 325?F. They smell amazing and taste is so good!"

"I don't know what I did wrong but these did not turn out very well. Used sweetened flaked coconut instead of the shredded and extra large egg whites because that's what I had on hand. They spread out (bottom of cookie) on the baking sheet and were impossible to get off the GREASED baking sheet. Maybe too much egg white? Anyone else have this problem? Good taste, though!"

"Just a doubt about the egg whites: are they beaten?"

"I've never made macaroons before. And I made these twice in 24 hours. I have a couple of cookie events coming up and had co-workers try them. They raved about them. I did cut the sugar drastically, only because I dipped them in chocolate, which added a lot of sweetness. Congrats on your blue ribbon!!"

"First off, if you follow the recipe EXACTLY like it’s stated, your cookies will turn out perfectly. This was the first time I have ever made coconut macaroon cookies, and it will definitely NOT be the last! Couldn’t ask for a better recipe. THANK YOU for sharing!"

"This is great and easy! It tastes very similar to what we used to get a long time ago from a restaurant. I will definitely do it again, and probably fix five times as much! ! This will be a recipe that is made often....perfect with a cup of coffee! ( and egg whites were not beaten before mixing it together. )"
