These macaroons are amazing! The only change I made was to make the 1/2 cup of shortening into 3/4 cup of margarine. They taste so good my husband can't stay away from them. I will definitely make these again!

Good, but not amazing.

The first time I made these macaroons,they were incredibly dry but had an awesome taste. Making these the second time, I followed other reviewers advice and substituted butter for shortening (using 3/4 cup), added 1 cup of coconut and only boiling mixture for 1 minute. These turned ot great!

I made a bachelorette's version for the single gal or anyone really with ingredients found more typically in the average kitchen but still needs a quick fix of sugar. I used 3/4 c margaine instead of shortening, quick-cooking oatmeal instead of rolled oats, nestle hot cocoa mix w/ marshmallows instead of unsweetened cocoa, and then subseqeuently reduced sugar (which was just ultra fine, not white) to 1 1/4 c. Turned out great! Oh I also ran out of oatmeal so I threw in Cheerios so it wouldn't be so runny and didn't have any coconut so I didn't use any. :o) Moral: The basic recipe is very good and can be innovated to fit your needs/wants.

I used 1 cup of coconut and also added 1 teaspoon of vanilla as this is what my mom did when I was a child. They are so gooey good. All those people saying they won't stay together are boiling for too long! Cut back on boiling time and you will LOVE these.

Overall, the recipe I had been looking for. I increased the margarine/butter though as this recipe does make dry cookies. Increasing the butter/margarine make ooey-gooey good cookies!

Delicious! I used 3/4 cup margarine instead of shortening and 1/2 cup evap. milk instead of milk. This gave them an extra burst of fudge flavour and were a big hit at work! Thanks.
