Just the texture I was looking for! These are soft and chewy, just like my old recipe (which I can't find). To me, these are traditional macaroons. Other recipes call for beaten egg whites which yield more of a meringue texture. I omitted the almonds and used vanilla instead of almond extract, just personal preference. All family members agreed they were great and they very easy to make. Thank you!

These were probably the best macaroons I've ever eaten. I used all vanilla and omitted almond, and we decided they are better if they get slightly browned on the top. I made them 5 hours ago and we're about to mix up my second batch for Easter! Thank you!

I made the Cook's Illustrated Key Lime Pie and needed a recipe for the leftover egg whites (4). Found this and whipped it up in ten minutes. Didn't even have to change the oven temp! Pie came out and these went in. Now I have a lovely dessert for the grown-ups and yummies for the kiddies. Made exactly as written but drizzled a little semi-sweet chocolate over the top as they cooled. Delicious.
