Raspberry Coconut Macaroons (Smitten Kitchen) too wet ?

I tried Smitten Kitchen's Raspberry Coconut Macaroons today, and the batter is very wet. After baking, they were just the right amount of brown on bottoms and tops, but I feel the inside is still pretty moist. If I want to bake longer, but not burn them should I lower the temp? Raise the temp? Make them smaller? Add something to dry them out a bit more?

    I tried a second batch, made them smaller and cooked them on a slightly lower temp, but for slightly longer - hubby likes them better, I think the first batch was better.

    I don't mind the wetness, I'm just worried that they are not cooked enough and with the egg, I get al food paranoid since I know kids will be eating these. (Me, on the other hand, already had about 6 today).

      I would turn off the oven and leave them in for another 30 minutes, or so.

        gee, Mine came out perfect though way too sweet. Are you sure you beat the eggs enough? Deb does s ay they are more moist than traditional macaroons, so maybe you just don't like the recipe. you could try cooking them longer at a bit lower temp.
