I was looking to make some macaroons like the ones my mum always makes. I just made these and they're good although I found them to be too sweet. I put some plain greek yogurt in to make them more gooey (that's how we like them in my house) and a little less sweet and they turned out nicely. I think next time I will half the sugar.
Followed exact recipe........awesome!!!!!! Delicious and exactly the right consistency : )
I made these for my cookie giving Christmas 2008. I found them to be much too sweet for me. Next time I may try it with 1/2 the amt of sugar and see what happens.
