One of my all time favorites is cheese and potatoes. I made this recipie as a side dish for a dinner meal. It is easy to prepare. The macaroons are crisp and brown on the outside and moist and cheesy on the inside. They come out of the oven with a very appetising aroma and appearance. These macaroons would also make a great appetizer.

This was a clever and easy recipe! It was easy to make and had great flavor. I served them at a small dinner party as an appetizer and everyone was asking for more! The aroma was fantastic. The next day, my kids ate the second patch I had made to try as the side dish with our steak dinners, but really, they were happy to just chow down on these by themselves! Thanks!!!
