Macaroons My Way

Submitted by: SILVER36

Introduction

Coconut is my favorite but it is high in calories so I worked to reduce the impact in my diet. Sort of the ""have your cake and eat it too" concept . The recipe can be further modified by using splenda instead of gradulated sugar. It works just as well. If you want to make them look festive add 1/4 piece of marachino cherry on top before baking.

I make them plain so those few calories were not calculated.
