I adore macaroons in any flavor combination. Surprisingly, the calorie content is not so bad. I make these all the time because my family loves them. We have taken them to parties, barbeques and other events. I have handed out this recipe several times to friends and family who are looking for the perfect macaroon cookie themselves. I love it and you will too!
