What is the Difference Between a Macaroon and a Cookie?

Is a Macaroon a Cookie? A macaroon is an unleavened cookie. Meaning there are no ingredients that make cookies rise, like baking soda or baking powder. They are made with ground nuts, sugar and egg whites. Their chewy unique texture makes these pull-apart soft cookies very chewy. Sinking your teeth into them is far from the experience of biting into a crisp or even soft cookie.
Our flavorful Almond or Coconut Macaroons last about 10 days at room temperature, and can be refrigerated and even frozen. Keeping them cool makes them stay chewier longer. Gift boxes on one, two and three dozen can be shipped nationwide year round anywhere in the USA. We use USPS Priority Mail where normal delivery time s just 2 - 3 business days nationwide. These make great gifts!
