This is the best and easiest macaroon recipe I have found! I had them in the oven in less than 10 minutes! Be sure to use silpat mats or parchment paper, NOT waxed paper or they will stick! Also, this recipe makes lots of cookies; I got 5 dozen big ones using a one inch scoop. from Martha Stewart.com
