2 (1 ounce) squares
semisweet chocolate, melted
I found these sweets quick and easy to make. They would add an old fashioned touch of elegance to any tray of goodies.
I used parchment to line my cookie sheet, and had no trouble with sticking, but I slightly under-baked the first sheet and they ended up too soft. Just make sure the edges are golden and they should be fine. Also, they spread our alot! I thought I was making pretty small drops, until they came out! They were about four times larger in diameter! All in all, very, very good!
I tried the 1st batch as directed-and I ended up with cookies that had spread over the whole pan. The 2nd batch, I omitted the cornstarch, replaced 1/4 c of sugar with icing sugar (confectioners) and added 2tbsp of flour. Beautiful!
I made a double batch of these. I did drizzle them with chocolate. It adds a really snazzy touch to them. My first batch I followed the directions. I found that greasing and starching the cookie sheet DID NOT work. They were difficult to remove and frustrating. The second batch I used parchment paper which worked wonderfully. Whoever invented parchment paper deserves a scratch and sniff sticker!
Like most others, I got coconut patties. Not sure where I went wrong, I followed the recipe.. I beat the bejesus out of the egg whites, and as soon as I added sugar (even the first spoonful) it went flat. Anyone who claims they didn't get a unicookie is simply lying. I whipped the eggs until they peaked like Mt. Everest, and then the sugar flattened them out like Kansas. This recipe is a good way to lower your self esteem.
Excellent! I flollowed the advice of others and replaced the cornstarch with 1/4 cup flour. They were cripsy on the outside and soft in the center. I would recomend doubling the batch because one is not nearly enough:) I made half of them with chocolate chips and coco. Mmmmm chocolate:)
We loved these cookies! 'Perfection'.
I didn't have any trouble at all getting them off the cookie sheet like others have reported, I used just baking spray. I mixed in 1/4 C. flour instead of the small amount of cornstarch. I also did not use any chocolate, but they were great anyway!
I think there's something wrong with this recipe... mine turned out runny, flat, and really weird. I added a photo of how they turned out.
I thought these were super easy to make and tasted great. They are very sweet, but that is how i like cookies. I made a double recipe using half splenda and half sugar. My cookies did not stick to the pans, i guess that has happened to other reviewers. I did grease the pans and coat with cornstarch and they came right off with a spatula.
