This is a good recipe. I like less sugar so I added it last and slowly and I only added 2T. They were great! I used half almond and half vanilla extract and dipped them in melted 85% chocolate. These are great if you are trying to eat healthy because you won't mess up the batch by adding less sugar and they are still sweet because of the coconut. I also like that it took about 2 min of prep. :)
These macaroons turned out wonderfully! For less than 10 minutes work, you can make a yummy little treat that looks so pretty on a cookie tray. I also like that I usually have all of the ingredients on hand. I didn't bother with a photo as the one that you posted was so pretty. Made for Fall PAC 2011. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
