I made these to use as gifts for Christmas. They are very good and I would make them again.

These were great, just the Macaroon recipe I was looking for! I dipped the cooled cookie bottoms in some melted bittersweet chocolate and let set. My family loved them and they stored well (almost 2 weeks) in an airtight container on the counter. Thanks!
