The days have been so nice here in Georgia.
So nice that once again,the oven came back on.
This recipe for macaroons is quick, easy and satisfies a craving for something sweet.
The coconut for some reason, reminded me that Christmas is coming soon. Maybe it reminds me so because it resembles snow?
This recipe only makes 12. I think next time I will double it!
