Turned out amazing! I used a smaller scoop.
I made logs out of them.. Dipping the bottoms in chocolate and then drizzling the tops. Looks very appealing and can't wait to serve them @ the party !!!
I always add about 1/2 cup of slivered almonds and 1/4 cup of chopped dried cranberries to the coconut mixture. They add a nice chewy crunch to the cookies and are prettier, especially at Holiday time.
My niece LOVES coconut so I asked if she liked macaroons. She said the only ones she'd ever seen looked like burnt globs... So, I made these for her and she LOVED them. So light but chewy...and NO I didn't whip the whites first. Whipping the whites changes the nice texture completely. Now, she and her son ask me to make these for them.
These were absolutely delicious and a big hit this year. They were very easy to make too. I dipped some in white chocolate and others in milk chocolate. The white chocolate ones were a big hit! These are going to be a regular at holiday time every year now!
I followed the recipe exactly as written. The cookies were wonderful and the first cookie eaten by anyone I gave cookies to this year - and that person usually wanted to hide the rest : ) This will become an annual 'must bake' for me.
Great recipe but shouldn't you include that the egg whites should be whipped first?
