Yumm!! These are great! I did not use as much sugar and used whole wheat flour and they were still great. I ussually don't use whole wheat flour but I did not have all purpose. Also I used about 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and 1/4 teaspoon almond, and a little more coconut than what was called for!

These were really good and not too sweet! I followed the recipe as written, except that I used a food processor and added 1/4 tsp. each of almond and vanilla extracts and about 1/3 cup of almonds. I baked them on parchment paper in a 350 degree oven for 18 minutes. Afterwards, when they were cool, I melted semi-sweet chocolate with a very small amount of shortening and drizzled it on top of each macaroon. They were slightly crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside.

I made these for my husband who LOVES macaroons. I on the other hand, can't stand coconut and have never tried them before (nor will I). His feedback was that the flavor was good, but he wished they were a little bigger and had more uniform crispiness around the outside. They are moist and look pretty. He keeps eating them though, so something must be right!

So easy to make and so delicious. They were a huge hit at a recent dinner party. Only problem is that they're hard to stop eating.

This recipe is so easy and really delicious! They would taste even better dipped in chocolate. I would make them again!

I rated this five stars as I don't like coconut macaroons but these tasted great. HOWEVER MINE BURNED ON THE BOTTOM AT 15 minutes SO WATCH THEM VERY CLOSELY.. you might have to reduce cooking time.

Easy, fast. I made them just as directed, but they were too sweet for me. If I make them again I'll cut that way down.
