    Did you know that your “directions” call for salt but your “ingredients” makes no mention of it? How much salt please.

    Ooooh, I love coconut macaroons! My sister always makes them for Christmas, but got busy and didn’t this year. I may have to make some for myself as a very belated Christmas treat :)

    I *just* made similar easy macaroons last night using my friend’s recipe! I didn’t put flour and vanilla extract. I should give it a try next time!
