I love macaroons. These have all the flavor and are lighter.

I loved this recipe, it was easy and everything I was looking for. I used sweetened coconut shavings ( I couldn't find unsweetened ) and just like it said in the recipe reduced the sugar I did it by half and it worked perfectly. I also drizzled some semi-sweet chocolate over the top just because I love chocolate (the macaroons don't need the chocolate their flavor is amazing as is) and I loved it. Good job. I'm keeping this one for sure ;)
