Coconut Macaroons

If you’re like me and you’re trying to decide what to bring to your family’s Easter gathering, then this post is for you. This recipe is so simple, there are very few ingredients, and the cookies are light chewy. I could have eaten the entire batch in one sitting! My grandma usually enjoys making coconut macaroons for different family events so I thought I’d give it a try, and I will be making this recipe over and over again. It’s a new fan favorite! Coconut and almonds, the perfect combination!
