I've tried several linking tools, and the most recent one deleted many of the links to our vintage recipes before sending the "warning e-mail." Frustrating since those who were participating and I were trying to preserve these recipes for new generations. So, let's do it the old-fashioned way without any third-party linking tools.
This week, I'm sharing a macaroon cream pie recipe and its accompanying marshmallow meringue recipe. The pie recipe uses almond macaroons and is one of my favorites.
