These cookies can be piped out using a cookie press or pastry bag, shaped into mounds or little finger logs. Nice Christmas cookies.

Easy recipe, but I would suggest almond extract instead of (or in addition to) the vanilla. I used both because in my mind coconut macaroons should taste almond-y. Also, these were more like merangues with coconut in them. For a chewier, more macaroon-like cookie, use more coconut! With those changes, I'd rate these a 4-star cookie.

If served in France, you would be in the Bastille. It doesn't even resemble a macaroon!
