    I didn't leave for the three hours to settle and i used double the Amaretto. They were so yummy. Chewy and sweet! Great recipe  -  11 Dec 2010


    Sorry, but even after deducting sugar amount, its sweetness was so overwhelming that I couldn’t taste even almonds. Sadly this recipe will not be repeated in our house.  -  10 Apr 2018


    I have not tried this Recipe but I LOVE Macarons. If they are this easy to make they will be a Family Favourite at our home as the ones from our Local Bakery Cost $4.50 each. I do not want to put our Patisserie out of work but I MUST try this one. Thanks-a-lot,  -  05 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
