"I added a teaspoon of almond extract to the egg whites before mixing and only used half the sugar and these were AMAZING! Everyone was singing my praises...." See more"
"I doubled the recipe and easily made about 40 good-sized macaroons. I found that if I only baked them for 10 minutes instead of 12, they kept their snow-ball white look with golden brown tips. Pretty ..." See moreand tasty! At 12 minutes, you get a browner, chewier macaroon. Still tasty, less snowbally."
