  5. Tried this recipe, very easy to make. I used white sugar though coz it’s the only thing available but it turned out great as well. I saw some recipes mixed with cake flour, I tried it too, results are great too..maybe it’s used as an extender or something. Thanks for the recipe. Love this your site!!!

  19. Hello kuya ask ko lang po kung may video na kau on how to make kapampangan tamales…i want to prepare po sana sa pasko thank u po

  20. heller..i’m here in KSA. Can I use coconut powder for making macaroons? I can’t find a sweet shredded coconut here. Thanks.

  21. Anne Fish says:

    1 cup is equal to 227 grams

  22. We loved the macaroons, thanks for posting. Suggestion for those who will try. Do no wait for 30 mins, instead start checking after 20 mins in the oven because with brown sugar in the mixture, it gets golden toasty right away.

  23. Quennie says:

    hi, i noticed that you’re using a rubber scraper for mixing instead of the beater, is there a special reason for it? cant we use the beater to smooth the mixture faster and use the scraper for cleaning? sorry for being a smart a** but i’m new in baking so, i just want to know….thanks… (by the way i’ve tried your chicken empanada and we love it! more power to you…..)

  24. hi there, is it ok for me to use the electric mixer? or do i really need to use a fork to mix it all up?? would it a difference? and also, is it ok to substitute the butter with marg?
    please adv

  25. Hi! I made this recipe so many times and my friends love it so much! But I found out that its a little bit sweet. Can I reduce the sweetness or lessen the condensed milk? Thanks in advance!

  28. apriltrinidad23 says:

    ask ko po sana if allowed bang gumamit ng electric hand mixer? instead of fork, manual beater & spatula.

  29. Thank you for sharing us the coconut macaroons.. I tried it today, but it was so greasy.. did you mean 1/2 cup of butter instead of 1 cup? then also, I baked it at 400 degrees and for 30 mins.. some were burnt…

    please advise.


    • Hi cherry, 1 cup of butter works for me but if you feel that it is to greasy then try reducing it to 3/4 cup. As for the oven temp, not all ovens produce the exact heat even if the temp is set on the same level. I suggest that you check the macaroons a few minutes before the recommended time to ensure that they are baked perfectly. Thanks for commenting.

    • Janette says:

      Same thing happened to my macaroons. I will also reduce the butter and also the temp maybe to 350 degrees and lesser time.

  30. Hi islun, you may place this in a round pan but there could be a difference in the texture and cooking time need to be increased. I suggest that you bake it in small proportions.
