    I was so happy to find a recipe for macaroons that didn't use sweetened condensed milk. It was a little too sweet for my family, but it had a good texture and it was easy to make. I also had to lengthen the baking time to about 30 minutes.  -  10 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Honestly, this was my first macaroon recipe I've ever tried. I liked it! I doubled the recipe and followed exactly. The cookies were light and fluffy, yet chewy at the same time. We are big coconut lovers so this was great!  -  26 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very nice light cookie to have with tea. They turned out more of a meringue then a macaroon cookie. I would recommend using parchment paper to line the cookie sheet if your pan is not non stick. I had to cook the cookies 10 minutes longer due to high humidity. I will make them again.  -  20 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
