    I can see how these will be absolutely fantastic when I chill them, however, ERMA these were so unbelievable just cooled!!!! I'm not a big macaroon person, but these little guys tasted like coconut haystack candies. Wonderful and thanks for a yummy cookie!  -  14 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made these for Easter. I put them in 12 sprayed muffin cups, to create a basket shape by pressing out the middle with a teaspoon. Just before they were done, I took them out of the oven, pressed in the middle again, and put them back in for a few minutes. I cooled them in the freezer before I took them out of the pan. Each basket held 2 chocolate foil-wrapped eggs. For decoration I put a few marshmallow 'chickens' on the plate. They look pretty good, and I'm wondering how to use this trick for something other than Easter. The taste was 5 star, and I'll make these as little cookies any time.  -  23 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
