"These macaroons are amazing! The only change I made was to make the 1/2 cup of shortening into 3/4 cup of margarine. They taste so good my husband can't stay away from them. I will definitely make ..." See morethese again!"
"The first time I made these macaroons,they were incredibly dry but had an awesome taste. Making these the second time, I followed other reviewers advice and substituted butter for shortening (using 3/..." See more4 cup), added 1 cup of coconut and only boiling mixture for 1 minute. These turned ot great! "
"I made a bachelorette's version for the single gal or anyone really with ingredients found more typically in the average kitchen but still needs a quick fix of sugar. I used 3/4 c margaine instead of..." See more shortening, quick-cooking oatmeal instead of rolled oats, nestle hot cocoa mix w/ marshmallows instead of unsweetened cocoa, and then subseqeuently reduced sugar (which was just ultra fine, not white) to 1 1/4 c. Turned out great! Oh I also ran out of oatmeal so I threw in Cheerios so it wouldn't be so runny and didn't have any coconut so I didn't use any. :o) Moral: The basic recipe is very good and can be innovated to fit your needs/wants.
