Obviously I see now there is a mistake in the recipe. Since I didn't have a 14 oz bag, I followed the instructions in parentheses and proceeded to waste 5 cups of KLP coconut

I love these cookies so much that I made them as wedding favors at my wedding....and everyone kept asking for the recipe! I make these every year....such an easy cookie with a delicious taste and texture! I cook mine only on the top rack...takes longer but they burn very easily.

I really love this recipe. It is simple and easy. I used a round tbsp measuring spoon to form the macaroons, and they come out crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I took a double batch to a church function and they disappeared.

Excellent recipe! I used a cookie scoop and packed the "dough" down. Baked at 24 minutes. Beautiful!

This recipe is really not good. I baked two macaroons first before the rest because the baking time seemed way too long. They were burned to a crisp at 25 minutes. I lowered the time to 12 minutes and they were not burned, but just crispy and dry. Glance at any other recipe for macaroons and you will see the proportions for ingredients are clearly wrong on this recipe. Maybe this review will save you from wasting 5 1/3 cups of organic flaked coconut, but I sure wish I hadn't wasted mine.

The recipe states to bake for 25-30 minutes. No way! Glad I knew better. Bake for 10-12 minutes at most. Other than that...great and easy recipe. Going to drizzle or dip them in chocolate.

These are awesome! Super easy to make, I didn't have a level tbsp so I used 2 tsp spoons to make and shape the cookie dough into 1 inch balls (it can get a little sticky, so this was a nice alternative). I also dipped these in white, dark and milk chocolate - melt chocolate to 100C in a double boiler and cool down the chocolate to 89C by adding a few more solid pieces of choc, stir to smooth choco. This will ensure no blooming to the chocolate, and it will dry perfectly on a baking mat.

So easy! I dipped mine in melted chocolate and mmmmmmm...so good! I brought a couple batches in to work and I had a few people tell me they were the "best macaroons they'd ever had"! Pretty cool considering the simple ingredients and quick prep time. These will be a staple in my cookie arsenal.
