Reviews forFirst Place Coconut Macaroons
"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!!"
"This is an accurate review. Made exactly as recipe was written. 5 stars!!!! Super easy to make and a fabulous tasting macaroon.This one is a keeper!!!!Thank you so much for this recipe. I can see why you won 1st place.Awesome!!!!TamileeR"
"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!"
"Sitting here munching on one, these are fantastic, so glad I didn't use the recipe with the condensed milk, these are perfect, not too sweet."
"These macaroons turned out great, my family and co-workers loved them when I took them to work."
"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. )"
"this is a keeper, they are soooooo good"
"I am not reviewing this recipe yet, and I hope to make these soon, but in looking at the reviews I want to know are the egg whites supposed to whipped to soft peaks before mixing with the other ingredients. Please help!!!!"
