Coconut Macaroons

Rated as 4.53 out of 5 Stars

"THESE COOKIES earned me a first-place ribbon at the county fair. They remain my husband's favorites--whenever I make them to give away, he always asks me where his batch is! I especially like the fact that the recipe makes a small enough batch for the two of us to nibble on. --Penny Ann Habeck Shawana, Wisconsin"
