Many months ago someone posted to this board about Melfer's Macaroons in Los Angeles. They sounded yummy, so I checked out the website and saved the URL, as I do with many things I read here, with the intention of perhaps someday ordering them.
They only make chocolate macaroons (with variations on the theme) and I much rather have vanilla, but something possessed me to send them to my folks this Passover - and boy am I glad I did. They're excellent - like chewy, very coconutty brownies. Better than any coconut macaroon I've had. (My mother, who rarely eats sweets, loved 'em.) We had original chocolate and chocolate peanut butter.
So to whoever posted that tip - thank you! - they were a hit.
