I don’t know if any of you have tried store bought macaroons….but…..blech! I don’t know why it surprised me that they would actually taste leaps and bounds better than anything I had from the store…but they are SO MUCH BETTER! These are my FAVORITE indulgent cookie. I don’t make them very often because I have little self-control when these are staring at me on the kitchen counter. These are incredibly easy and don’t call for a lot of ingredients so these are also great if you have a pot luck to go to with out much in your pantry.
