Awesome, very simular to my jewish grandmothers from fifty years ago. not as sweet as some, but far better texture. the shortening in the dipping chocolate works well to neutralize the stablizer in the chips. and the macadmais put it over the top for me.
These are great (got them from the same Food Network newsletter). These macaroons are lighter and fluffier than ones I've tried in the past. They are also not as sweet. They're equally delicious with or without the chocolate and macadamia nuts, I made some with and some without. I also left out the shortening for the chocolate, they just took a little longer for the chocolate to set. Great recipe, thanks! :)
