Macaroons III

Recipe by  

"Simple soft, chewy recipe. You can add a lot of things or... nothing at all. I have never tried them chocolate covered but I am sure this recipe, after cooled, could be dipped in chocolate as well!"

I changed this receipe just a bit.. I added 2/3 cup of flour (stops the spreading) and altered the extract amount to 1 tsp of Almond extract + 1 1/2 tsp of Vanilla extract. I baked them for 12 minutes at 350F on a non-stick airbake cookie sheet that I sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Yummy!!

this recipe should me made on parchment paper. no clean up and the macaroons slide right off.

We cracked the code -- UNSWEETENED coconut is the key! Our first attempt involved sweetened coconut, which resulted in a delightful macaroon soup. We realize the recipe doesn't call for sweetened coconut, but when you hit the baking aisle of the grocery store, that tends to be the first (and often only!) type you see. So, on to the health food store for unsweetened coconut, and macaroon perfection was soon achieved.

This has always been a favorite recipe of mine to use every year at Christmas. Over the years of making them I have learned a few things. One thing I recommend is use parchment paper or a silicone mat. I remember these were sticky and a little hard to take off the cookie sheet in years past. Another thing I recommend is once you scoop the "dough" on the mat is to damp your fingers and lightly tap down any of coconut flakes that may be sticking up to prevent burning. These cookies also need to sit awhile before enjoying being that if they don't have time to fully cool, they will fall apart. But nonetheless, great macaroon in my book. Oh, side note: I used Fat free condensed milk this time and they came out great!

These are perfect. They are delicious and simple; moist and chewy. I added almond extract instead of vanilla. Just be VERY careful when removing them from the cookie sheet. DON'T USE YOUR FINGER TO GET IT OFF OF THE SPATULA!!! Remember the warnings about hot caramel??? Well, hot sweetened condensed milk is just as sticky!

I was going to add this recipe myself, seeing as I made it last night, but I found it already on here instead! I used 8 cups of unsweetened coconut, 1 small can of sweetened condensed milk, and two teaspoons of vanilla extract. I had to use my electric mixer to mix everything really well. Simply drop these onto a well greased pan and bake for 8 minutes. They are fragile when they first come out, so be careful when you transfer them on a plate to cool. I love these simple treats!

These were super easy to make and came out perfect the first time. The flavor was outstanding. I didn't have any problems with running or anything, will be making time and time again.

I wasn't at all happy with this recipe. It was no more than a sweet ball of coconut. Also very hard to remove from the pan to a cooling rack without falling apart. Cookie is very light and airy. The edges brown up nice, but tops stayed very white.
