    2nd batch in 5 days kids can't get enough of them  -  16 Aug 2013


    These macaroons are amazing! The only change I made was to make the 1/2 cup of shortening into 3/4 cup of margarine. They taste so good my husband can't stay away from them. I will definitely make these again!  -  28 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The first time I made these macaroons,they were incredibly dry but had an awesome taste. Making these the second time, I followed other reviewers advice and substituted butter for shortening (using 3/4 cup), added 1 cup of coconut and only boiling mixture for 1 minute. These turned ot great!  -  12 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
