Cherry Topped Coconut Macaroons FAQS;
why did my coconut macaroons spread?
Coconut macaroons may spread during baking and it is ok. But they can spread a lot if you’ve used finely ground coconut. We suggest using coconut flakes for the best result.
why did my coconut macaroons go flat?
There are several reasons why your coconut macaroons might be flat.
First, if you used fewer coconut flakes. Ideally, you need to use flaked coconut in this recipe because it is larger, more tender, and softer.
Second, if you overmixed the coconut, beaten egg white, and condensed milk mixture.
Third, if the batter for coconut macaroons warmed up (for the best result, you can put the coconut macaroon batter in the refrigerator). You should follow the recipe closely if you don’t want to make flat coconut macaroons.
why are my coconut macaroons runny?
Your coconut macaroons may be runny before baking if you have used too much-condensed milk.
If you have mixed all the ingredients for the coconut macaroons (not including maraschino cherries) and you see that the coconut flakes and condensed milk batter are very liquid, you can add more flakes to fix it.
