My absolute favorite go-to cookie recipe. Its gluten-free but tasty, it has few ingredients and its so adaptable! I do not microwave the chocolate because it seizes when I do. Instead, I seal the chocolate in a freezer bag, melt it on a double boiler and then snip the corner of the bag when I am ready to decorate. Christmas cookie adaptation: form cookies into tall triangle shapes, add nut to the bottom (or eliminate it entirely) for the tree trunk, add red cinnamon candy to the top point of the cookie. Bake as usual. After cookie has cooled, decorate with melted green [mint] chips as if they were garlands across a Christmas tree.
Love this recipe! Just a note: remember to use parchment paper (or something similar)-the sugar will crystallize on your pan. The parchment paper will help to keep the cookies from falling apart from trying to get them off the pan. I had them in the oven for 15 minutes and it was perfect. Enjoy!
Made these for my nieces bridal shower, they where a huge hit and very easy to make.
You could substitute the baking sheets for aluminum foil, I found out. This was all my family thought about even after they were long gone. The aroma of the toasted coconut was irresistible! Couldn't make a better dessert! I would however substitute the dark chocolate for a milk or even white chocolate for this dessert, as it feels too strong for the delicate taste of toasted coconut.
Very good, pretty and easy. As long as you like coconut, what's not to like?
I was not impressed by this recipe. The macaroons lacked a certain density of other more traditional recipes.
these are a real keeper. I made 18 different kinds of cookies this year in my holiday gift tins and these were a hit. everyone loves them. they are so easy to make. I have added a leftover egg white into this batter - helps keep them stick together better.
Followed this recipe and it turned out so yummy! Will definitely make it again!
What could you substitute for the condensed milk that's non-dairy?
These simple cookies taste good and are easy to make. Put them on them on a pretty tray, and guests will snap them up. Store in an airtight container.
Very pretty but still not as tasty as a Mounds bar :(
Wouldn't serve these to any guests, sorry! I'd give these a total zero rating if I could. Try adding one ingredient, ALMOND PASTE, & they'll taste like the greatest cookies. Might be more costly per recipe but only slightly more per cookie. If you're going to make cookies, make cookies to be proud of & the recipe as written is NOT. Sorry! Chocolate drizzle over the top is nice, but use a dark chocolate to cut the sweetness. My opinion only!
I have used this recipe for many years. It is always a favorite. Mine calls for a candied cherry in the middle and no chocolate. This looks like a great variation. If you like coconut this is a great treat! Do not stack them without paper between layers when storing. They also freeze well.
These are soooo easy, and really delicious! Keep an eye on them as they bake, especially at around the 12-minute mark. They can quickly go from golden to overdone. I'm definitely doing these for cookie exchange this Xmas.
Who woulda thought these could be so easy. This is hubby's favorite cookie!
