These are my mother-in-law's macaroons. This is a great no-bake recipe which is easy to make, freezes well, and tastes heavenly. 01/26/07---When scooping these cookies, make sure the batter isn't too liquidy. The batter should be thick. If you use quick oats, you may run the risk of attaining a crumbly batter as I did the last time I made these- no problem. Just add a bit of milk, blending thoroughly after each tablespoon. Then, using a cookie scoop or tablespoon measure, press the batter into the scoop with either your fingers or the back of a spoon to make it hold together then drop them onto the waxed paper and proceed as described below (if you are using a tablespoon measure, you may need to tap it against the cookie sheet to get the batter to drop out).
