"I didn't have macaroons and wasn't going to drive to the store to purchase any BUT I did have my homemade snickerdoodles on hand and used those. Also, did not use an apple just added more rhubarb. My company thought it was great and so today when I make it I will do the same thing. The snickerdoodles already have the extra sugar and cinnamon on them so didn't need to add any more. Loved how easy it was! Thank you for sharing."
