  • Scoop 2-3 Tbsp of batter onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Place cookies about 2 inches apart.

  • Store in airtight container for 3 days at room temperature, or 5 days in the refrigerator.

Optional Chocolate Topping

  • Melt chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl (microwave at 15 second increments and stir until completely melted) and drizzle over cooled macaroons.
