Macaroons with chopped almonds. I have had this recipe in my file for years. Try it drizzled with or bottoms dipped in melted chocolate. This cookie is my personal favorite!

Not exactly like my favorite macaroons at the Jersey Short but very tasty and quite easy. I used vanilla extract since I didn't have almond and used unsweetened coconut which made them just right.
