Coconut Macaroons German Style
December 21, 2008

After starting on the meringue portion of the recipe, I realized I only had 3/4 cup of flaked coconut!! I thought it would be a disaster, but I went ahead and tried to subsititute the remaining measurement with finely chopped almonds. I also didn't have almond extract so I used vanilla. And I had to adjust the cooking temp and times, probably because of my mistakes. Oh yeah, I also didn't have parchment paper so I used foil :) BUT...I was so pleasantly surprised that they actually came out GOOD! So, all this is to say that you can really botch up these cookies and they will still turn out! Next time, I'll try to make the cookies as directed and see what they're supposed to taste like, but just know that if you don't have the exact ingredients or measurements, they'll probably still come out ok!! Good luck!
