French Macaroons

So I decided to give French Macaroons another try.  My first attempt (here) was somewhat of a fail because I ended up with only 4 "sandwich" cookies.  Most of them broke when I took them off the wax paper.   This time it went much better but I still only ended up with a dozen presentable macaroons & I doubled the batch.  I bought Bob's Red Mill Almond Flour instead of trying to make my own (too much work with a mini food processor & sifting thru a wire strainer to get the big pieces out).    I made these for a birthday at my office - who is on a dairy free, gluten free diet.   They came out much better than my 1st attempt and I'm hoping the next try goes better than my 1st 2 attempts. 

I used Martha Stewart's recipe this time & it was almost identical to the 1st one that I used.
