Great Gluten Free Cookie
They are wonderful gluten free cookies. Taste is great and very easy to make. Use parchment paper to insure non- stick.
so i haven't tried mine yet, but i found it easier to make them, when using an icecream scoop. you compact it and and then use the scoop to scoop it onto the pan. worked much better than the spoon!!! and also, get some semi-sweet chocolate squares, melt a few, and when the macaroons are completely cooled, you half way cover them with the melted chocolate. put it in the fridge to cool, and let chocolate harden, and you're set! for chocolate dipped macaroons!!!! [: YUMM!
Flavor was good, however too much s.c. milk for a (14oz.)pkg. Too sticky. Need more coconut.
These cookies are so good. My friend's husband loves these so much that I have to make them every year for Christmas. One year the cookies were still runny after baking, so I rebaked them. He said they were better than the first time.
Parchment Paper is the Solution
These macaroons are so easy. To solve the "falling apart" problem, use a second spoon to press the mixture together before removing it from the spoon to the parchment paper. Plus, No sticking, therefore no mess on the cookie sheets that way! I like to bake mine a few minutes extra and get them well browned on the bottoms. Yum!
