Coconut Macaroons – hint of lemon

April 4, 2013 by 6 Comments

Coconut Macaroons are one of my favorite cookies.  I love adding a hint of lemon in my cooking and baking, and the addition to Coconut Macaroons is totally heavenly!  They’re real quick and easy, too.  I usually don’t even use a mixer for this recipe, just a whisk and a brief arm workout.
