This is a real macaroon recipe! Freshly whipped egg whites, rather than sweetened condensed milk.. just the way I like. The only thing I changed was to decrease the sugar to only 1/4 cup - because I used sweetened flaked/shredded coconut. It's plenty sweet, although I like my desserts to be not *too* sweet. :) I baked for 20 minutes (and turned the trays halfway through), but they were barely browning. So, I increased the temperature to 350 for an additional 2 minutes, and it did the trick. I baked them on parchment paper that I had smeared with a little bit of vegetable oil (using a paper towel). After they had cooled, they came off simply. I drizzled mine with melted semi-sweet chocolate.. divine! Thank you for this recipe. . I had been searching for it.
