    I don't think they look bad. Don't be so hard on yourself!

    I have a recipe like that. The coconut macaroons I make are from one of your hero chefs — Ina Garten — and while the cookies apparently taste amazing (I don't eat coconut) they can spread like this. I use a small cookie scoop with a release and drain them as much as possible against the side of the bowl before dropping them on the silpat, which helps some (otherwise, I cut the spread edges after they've cooled.). I leave them on the tray for about 5 minutes before carefully moving them to the cooling racks, which helps firm them some, and I need to scrape the spatula in between cookies because they can leave sticky residue. It's all worth it though; super easy to make and everyone who eats them loves them.

    Draining each one before baking is a really smart idea, Aunt Lynn! Clearly these little pups could've used that.
