This is my daughters favorite cookie. Sometimes I drizzle them with melted chocolate, other times I leave them plain. I tweaked this recipe more than twenty years ago, and was very pleased with the results, so I have been using it ever since. It is very moist,& chewy. It has been family & neighbor approved for years.

How to Make ONE BOWL COCONUT MACAROONS

Step-by-Step

  • 1Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; MIX WELL. Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls, one inch apart, onto a well greased baking sheet. Add a cherry half or quarter to each cookie by pressing into cookie lightly.
  • 2Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown around edges.
  • 3Remove from cookie sheet IMMEDIATELY WHILE STILL WARM. Or they will stick to pan.

    NOTE: I HAVE ALWAYS USED MARASCHINO CHERRIES on top , BUT THAT IS OPTIONAL. You can also drizzle melted chocolate over cookie in a zig zag fashion. Very impressive, and can dunk half of cookie in melted chocolate if you like. Use your imagination.
  • 4You can also cut this recipe in half if you like. with great results. I use the entire recipe, because I usually freeze some, and give some away to the neighbors.
