Try the following almond macaroons recipe for the Passover / Pesach festival. There are many almond macaroon recipes, but the following almond macaroons recipe is in the Persian/Iranian style for an exotic twist! For a bit of trivia, Iran was known as Persia until 1935 in the Western World, but Iranians have used the term "Iran" since ancient times. In 1959, the head of the government of Persia/Iran announced that both Persia and Iran could be used as the name for the country, and so both names have since been used interchangeably since 1959.
