Easy Coconut Macaroons

These are my chocolate-dipped macaroons without the chocolate. I actually prefer them this way. This is a sticky mixture so take time to combine it really well, which takes at least a minute. - Jenny Jones

    Can you freeze the macaroon cookies or refrigerate to keep fresh? Thx

    I added some frozen raspberries I had leftover, not many , about 5 or 6 and mashed them in, cookies were very good.

    First time baking these and happened to see Paul’s comment so added a 1/4 teaspoon Raspberry flavoring to the mix and a couple chips to the top. Oh: so good. Thank you Jenny. I’m 81 and love the 2 hour bread and the 20 minute Pizza.

    Just made your macaroons and they came out excellent. One problem they taste flat.
    You didn’t list any flavoring, next time I think I will add some almond extract.
    I really like your videos and recipes. Have made the no knead bread many times and every one likes it also the P?czkis and they came out good, but I had trouble getting enough filling in them. I am 84years old and enjoy baking.
