Sensational!! What a great macaroon! Move over Paula Deen these are far better than your recipe. Our son loved them..said they were the best.

These are a treat. What a great macaroon. I loved the addition of the orange rind, it takes the cookie to a new level. This cookie is indeed dry & crispy on the outside but sweet and chewy on the inside. Thanks so much for sharing Dinglebop.
