DAY 7: Coconut macaroons

It is already Day 7 of December and time is flying by so fast! Have you started with your Christmas shopping? I already got a few presents but still have a lot to get on my list…

Today’s recipe is coconutty! :D Coconut macaroons are really easy to make and should not be missing at any Christmas party. During Christmas time you can see them in supermarkets and bakery displays but nothing beats a homemade coconut macaroon! Those delicious two-bite cookies fit perfectly in the cooler months and remind me of  snowy days.
