I love coconut and especially coconut macaroons. I hadn’t thought about them in while but this morning while getting coffee there were beautiful macaroons, stacked beautifully in little pink boxes, near the register. I gave in and had one with my morning coffee and then spent the day scouring the internet for recipes to make my own. I decided on a recipe from Cooking Light for chocolate macaroons and eliminated the cocoa because I prefer them in all their plain coconut glory. They didn’t quite turn out like macaroons, and hence the title coconut cookies, but they are delicious chewy like a great macaroon but the addition of the flour gives them a little bit of a cookie feel. The boyfriend tried one when he got home and immediately asked when I was making them again (even though we currently have 36 of them, well now maybe 30…)

According to the recipe these cookies freeze well although I haven’t tried it yet.
