Recipe Wednesday: coconut macaroons

Coconut MacaroonsWho knew, I would have strength today to whip up a scratch recipe for recipe Wednesday. It was a low low key day  for me, in fact I slept for the majority of it until about 4 PM. I am trying to keep it low and slow so as to not agitate this flare I’m in any longer since I may be headed out of it finally.

Anyway, I’ve been dying to add macaroons to the bakery menu and since I have never made them from scratch, it made perfect sense.  These are so simple and easy to make and they come out light, flaky, and toasty. The best thing about them is that they are naturally gluten free. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to have just one. This recipe makes just a dozen exactly perfect for a gift, snack, or late night treat you can never go wrong with macaroons.
