ATG117, I had a similar question about my lemon thyme macaroons. Mine come out thin and crispy, while the editors' version were puffy and soft in the middle. The best answer was that the zest was adding fat to the meringue, which was causing it to deflate. Ive never made these cookies, but could that be the case for you? I'm going to try the macaroons again soon and see if I can get them to be soft and puffy.

Thanks for the response. With all the commenters on this recipe, I imagined there would be more feedback. The interesting thing was that there was no instruction in this recipe to whip the egg whites. I asked about that on hotline initially. The final product seemed to be off and disappointing. I would imagine they would have been much better with some chew. Just not sure where things went wrong. I would have thought it was the recipe, but so many pple commented about how fantastic they were.

I was ready to let this go, but now that the recipe has resurfaced again in the features section, I thought that maybe I'd have more luck generating an answer now.

Maybe private message Jestei?
