These are much nicer than my Chewy Coconut Macaroons. The Angel Coconut makes them much more moist. They're almost cake-like on the inside. The one problem I had was that the egg tended to run out on the baking sheet. You can see what I mean in the photo with the chocolate drizzle. I think what I might do next time is beat the egg yolks and whites separately. I'd beat the whites until stiff and fold them into the beaten yolks before adding the coconut. I tried the chocolate drizzle on half of the cookies and I have to say that I prefer them plain. The chocolate detracts from the delicate coconut flavor and also makes them messier to eat.

Here's a photo of the macaroons with chocolate drizzled on them:
