Made this for a dinner party. Served with fresh fruit, pineapple, berries, mango, etc. It was a huge it. My husband loves lemon, coconut & meringue, so it was perfect. I, too, put parchment paper in the pan. It was a breeze taking the whole "cookie" out and put it on a cutting board to cut. I might try lemon extract instead of almond next time.
Neither the almond flavor or the lemon flavor was strong enough. It was mostly sweet coconut. Way better cookie recipes out there, I was far from excited. Meh.
