Coconut Macaroons


Baking has always been incredibly calming to me and I have been known to bake in large quantities when stressed.  Perhaps work has been a little crazy recently or maybe I needed an excuse to bring more sweets into our house after my self-imposed 40 day hiatus; whatever the reason, I tried my hand at this recipe.  Thanks to my KitchenAid Mixer, it was an incredibly easy recipe to replicate.  How on earth did I live without it before?!

I truly think that coconuts are one of the most under-appreciated fruit.  There isn't anything that contains coconut that I don't like.  They add great texture to food and have a fantastic flavor.  Not to mention they remind me of the tropics and who doesn't want to be reminded of some wonderful beach somewhere?

The end results were as yummy as they were beautiful.  They got the request for second from Hubs, which means they passed our household test.  These macaroons would be a great item to make for a get together with friends or a new neighbor to welcome them to the neighborhood.

 Everyone needs a kitchen helper.  I had my very own Coco-nut waiting for me to drop some yummy goodness for her.  For you dog owners, coconut macaroons have been known to help with digestive disorders in dogs.  Disclaimer: Don't feed your dogs chocolate macaroons and please check with your vet before you start on any sort of therapy for your dog.
