Coconut Macaroons

This is truly a great recipe; it's stunningly easy to make (only 5 ingredients!) and will produce the best macaroons you've ever had (unless, of course, you've eaten mine). I once brought them to a friend's party and two years later, I was reintroduced to a woman who had been there. Her eyes lit up in recognition and she exclaimed, “You're the macaroon lady!” She still remembered them. I've lived in this woman's memory as “The Macaroon Lady.”

Tonight I made a double batch for bridge night (helping Bri AGAIN) and Kathy, a fellow bridge player, surveyed the table of goodies and stated that she loved coconut, but hated macaroons. I convinced her to try half of one, and she did. She finished the cookie. She finished a second one. I have now converted her to the Nation of Macaroons.

Try the recipe and then join us in the coconut cult.
