I have a question about the recipe "Alice Medrich's New Classic Coconut Macaroons" from Genius Recipes. Any tips on how to make these "attractive heaps"?
Basically you can just shape them with your fingers -- it isn't difficult. They are sticky, so wetting your hands between every few you shape helps. I just put a lump on the parchment with a spoon and then use my fingers to push the lump together into something coherent.
This recipe truly is incredible -- best macaroons EVER. Note that they go soggy by the next day and aren't as good that way. But putting them back in a low oven for 5 - 10 minutes (I often use the toaster oven for this) will re-crisp them.
