"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 merangu..." See morees 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. "
