Can you tell me if each tray needs to bake the 20-25 minutes? I am confused by the "switching of trays half way through.."
I made the recipe exactly as written, and used a overflowing 1 tablespoon cookie scoop to place them on the cookie sheets. they came out just like the picture, made 27 instead of 24 and were absolutely delicious.
Finely chopped pecans would be good in this recipe.
I did not have the same results as most of you. The recipe made 32 that were large macaroons (@ 3tbls. each not the 2tbsp. the recipe mentioned). Also macaroons were a little dry and did not stick together very well. I would like more lemony flavor and for them to be more moist. I will not be using this recipe again nor would I recommend it.
These macaroons are delicious and easy to make. Like others who wrote earlier reviews, I was confused by the simple "mix in the egg whites" instruction. Should they be whipped and if so, how much? I made two batches, one whisked only slightly to loosen them up, the second whipped to soft peaks. It made no difference. Both looked and tasted the same ... and both "leaked" a little, forming a flat surface on the paper, not the near spheres as shown in the picture. Also, each batch made 40 2-inch diameter cookies for me, not 24. Deeeelicious!
I made this the other day. Super easy and super yummy, everyone loves them. A new holiday favorite that is done in a jiffy.
These are extremely delicious, and just as easy as they seem!!!
These sound wonderful and something to share. How best to pack them for shipping to family and friends? How long will they keep...do I need to send them overnight or will 3 - 4 day shipping work? Thank you.
No need to beat the egg whites. This recipe is delicious just as it is written. I made them tonight and the cookies did not hang around long. If you can't get almonds, leave nuts out all together. They are certainly not required.
strawberry zest?!? i didn't even know you could do that!
nothing! most macaroon recipes don't call for the almonds. I'm going to try the recipe this weekend, but I'll bet you don't need to sub anything! Try it!
Anyone have a suggestion for substituting something else for the Almonds? I can't get Almonds in my area..what should I use instead?
I have not tried making these macaroons, but I'm pretty sure you have to beat the egg whites until fluffy. I would add a dash of salt to the egg whites, whip until foamy and then add a little lemon juice. Then I would beat at a high speed and gradually add sugar until stiff peaks form.
I would think you could use what ever you like.I'm wondering about strawberry zest... Worth a try..
does anyone know what the serving size is? Do you think 133 calories is one cookie or two?
I love coconut so this recipe was wonderful. The kids in the neighborhood loved them too.
