Tried these cookies yesterday. Excellent taste. My only problem is they do stick to a non-stick pan. Remember to grease the cookie sheet.

re-posting buddy2 from Dec: The 'cherry' comes from the almond extract, which gives a cherry-like flavor to food; ie: cherry pie calls for almond extract. Kay

No cherries? I'm finding that a lot of the recipes on this site on are incomplete, or missing the size of something, like the size of a pkg of jello or pudding, etc.

Hi I love macaroons but I would like to know where does the cherry come in. Keep up the good work.
