    The batter turned out fine, but I agree with previous commenters that this recipe is much too sweet. The temperature is also too high for too long; the first tray turned out crispy and browned, which is delicious in its own crunchy way but not a macaron. I turned my oven down to 300 and they came out great after 10 mins.

    I have been baking for 30 years and usually don't follow recipes by the book, but with this one I did, and they are a nice biscotti! They came out so hard, I followed step by step, they taste great but they are very hard, They are hollow in the middle, what happened was it the eggs? Were they supposed to be 2?? Please help, I did put food coloring and did some cream cheese and lemon and raspberry for the filling, they taste good, but the rest are not good looking. Help!!

    I haven't made them yet, but in the video she says 2 egg whites & the recipe on the page says 4 egg whites. that might be why everyones is so runny.

      My daughter is in love with the American Girl Doll of the Year Grace Thomas who is a baker. We searched high and low for a recipe that mommy, who hasn't baked in forever and an eight year old girl, could handle. Our first try and per the other review the egg yolks must be a room temperature and I think that is the majority of the problem. I used 4 egg whites at room temperature and it was perfect.

      I just made these.. I followed the recipe to the T, and my macaroons taste great, yet when I take them off of the cookie sheet, the whole middle of the macaroon seems to be missing. What did I do wrong? They didn't rise that high. The ones that did stay together are hollow in the middle, but most of them Have NO middle!! Help.. Thank you!

    The consistency was very fluid and runny. When I piped, the mixture lost the circle shape. The only difference was that I divided the dough and mixed green tea powder and chocolate powder. This could be the cause? Or I mixed a long time on step 3???

    Perfect recipe as long as you know the egg whites must be at room temp before you whip them. My first attempt was a fail but now perfect!

    Really enjoyed these cookies. We used the coconut extract instead of the almond which was a good variation. We let the cookies set 30 minutes before we baked them off. A good tip is too leave the cookies out to dry as long as you can. The longer the better. Also we recommend not baking these on a cold damp day as the cookies don't seem to dry out enough. Try not too make the cookies to small as they are very delicate.
