This recipe is from the Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook; another JAP member expressed an interest in a macaroon that had flour in the recipe, so when I found this one, I decided to post it for her approval!

I substituted almond extract for the vanilla ~ think it enhances the flavor of the coconut.

These are easy to make and taste yummy but...there is one thing wrong with the recipe...it makes only 18 cookies! If you really like macaroons, you may want to double the batch!

NOTE: Picture shown is from the ToH Comfort Food Diet Cookbook; will replace with my own pic the next time I make them. First time, they went too fast to get them arranged in a basket for a picture!
