I made your Coconut Macaroon recipe, but I did something wrong - they puddled at the bottom as they baked. What did I do wrong?

The Coconut Macaroons do tend to leak a little bit, but there shouldn't be a "puddle" beneath the cookies when they come out. Most likely, the egg whites were either under or over-whipped. For this recipe, it's important to whip them just until they form medium-firm peaks.
