"Nice summer dessert. I used pecan sandies instead of the macaroons and pecans, substituted 1/2 t almond extract for half the vanilla. Froze each layer before spreading the next. Very easy, very pretty."
"Hi Ceege, the amount should be 2 cups crumbled cookies. For testing purposes only, we used the Archway brand."
"C'mon TOH. Give us the "cup" amount of macaroons needed instead of the number of cookies. Cookies come in all sizes so I have no idea how much is needed to add to the cream. Please give us measured ingredients instead of numbers. I intend to keep this recipe in my recipe box as it sounds delicious, but will not attempt to make it until the above question is answered. Thank you"
"Wondering if there was difficulty spread sherbet on macaroon crust. Sounds delicious!"
"I'm not fond of sherbet, but I'm going to try this with fruit flavors of ice cream. It sounds Yummy!!!"
