Pumpkin Macaroons

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Mirj2338

The pecans and maple syrup add a very nice touch. This is a traditional Jewish Sephardic recipe.

I think Mystergirl hit it head on! These rock! The flavour is very simple and they were a snap to make. My only problem was waiting to let them cool down enough so I could eat one without burning myself! My husband, again, was somewhat disenchanted with the lack of 'sweet' that these had... but said they were 'better than the other ones'. ;) Thanks, Mirjam, guess I'll just be makin' these for myself!
