These are simple, classic, straight-up macaroons adapted from Tamra Davis (director/ chef/ mom/ married to a Beastie Boy). This is a great recipe, they are perfectly fluffy & sweet without falling apart -- the key is really beating the sugar & egg whites. Again, macaroons are a great gluten-free, dairy-free dessert option & the ingredients are most likely always in your kitchen--plus they're super cute. —we eat. happy.
