More information about this Almond Macaroon Recipe

 

Macarons are often also called macaroons however, the two items are not the same. Macaroons are a much more substantial affair. They can be made into relatively flat soft centred cookies or made deeper which end up being a cross between a cookie and a cake. They are made with coconut or almonds and are often decorated with chocolate, almonds or glace cherries.
