    Mirj's Note:

    There they are, every single Passover, those Macaroons. You can't escape them! I, personally, am not a fan of the coconut macaroon, which is the more popular kind of Passover cookie you find in the supermarket. But an almond macaroon? That's almost worth the whole holiday!

      What can I say? Thank you for a wonderful recipe! My DH really hates chocolate and loves almonds so I knew this would be perfect for him! Can I rate higher?
