My Favorite Macaroons

Julia Ferguson


This recipe came from the back of the coconut bag. These are probably my favorite cookie at Christmas. Most macaroon recipes have sweetened condensed milk in them, which makes them very sweet and very sugary. That is why I like this recipe, because it doesn't have the sweetened condensed milk.
These are easy to make and you can get a lot on one cookie sheet.
