Reviews for Cranberry Macaroons
"Great ingredients but the flavors didn't meld. Hard to get them off the pan even when greased."
"This sounds like it could be good if the corn flakes were omitted. It would reduce the empty carbs adn boost the per serving protein and the cranberries and almods are good for you but the cornflakes, well I never liked them as a cereal or as a coating or in anything. I don't like box cereals."
