This was the best almond macaroon recipe I found! I made them as part of my French display on Bordeaux at Foreign Language Day, and by the end, there was only one left. It was hard keeping my family away from them- they loved the almond taste. I left out the chocolate (because it didn't seem very French), which was fine. Make sure you use wax paper or similar or else the bottoms get a bit too dark. This was a wonderful recipe, I highly recommend it. Bon app!

WOW, I AM SO GLAD I TRIED THIS RECIPE EVEN THOUGH THE RATING WAS A FOUR. IT WAS A HUUUGE HIT WITH THE WHOLE FAMILY! I DID NOT HAVE WHOLE ALMONDS, SO ESTIMATED AND USED 1 3/4 CUPS OF GROUND ALMONDS INSTEAD. STILL MIXED THE WHOLE THING IN A FOOD PROCESSOR. USED CHOCOLATE CHIPS INSTEAD OF CHOPPED CHOCOLATE. THE BATTER CAME OUT REALLY PASTY AND STICKY, WHICH WAS VERY SIMILAR TO MY DAD'S ALMOND COOKIE RECIPE. SO I WORKED WITH IT AS IS. USED A MINI ICE CREAM SCOOP AND PLACED ON A PARCHMINT PAPER LINED COOKIE SHEET. DID NOT PRESS THEM DOWN, THEY FLATTENED PERFECTLY IN THE OVEN. THESE WERE SOOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!! ONE OF THE FEW RECIPES THAT I WILL HAVE TO REPEAT MANY TIMES!

I was on a wheat-free diet for a while and really missed cookies--wish I'd had these gems! They are scrumptious and, with a food processor, a snap to make. Gave a batch as a gift to a friend who's off wheat and she just adored them.
