Being from the South, we like our coconut recipes. Whether it’s a coconut pie or an epic coconut cake, we love the beauty of seeing that flaky, sweet goodness in our baked goods. Coconut macaroons are not only easy to make, they also require very little ingredients. I made these over the Christmas holiday, but they are perfect for spring events as well. Mother’s Day is coming up soon so these would be perfect for a Mother’s Day luncheon or tea!
