Tastespotting is a dangerous site to browse when you’re hungry – especially if you’re in the mood for something sweet. I saw the recipe for these babies last night, and knew I had to make them. I love coconut, and use it pretty often in my granola bars – I love the flavor of toasted coconut. I’d never made macaroons before, and I had some coconut in the pantry, so I figured I’d give them a whirl. I only made a half-batch according to the recipe on Comfy Belly, since I only had three eggs, and about a cup and a half of coconut. I did put the zest of an entire Meyer Lemon into the batter – I love lemon, especially Meyer lemons.
I made the macaroons on the large-ish side, so I only got 9 macaroons out of the batter, but the good news is, Mark is out of town for the weekend, so these light, fluffy macaroons are all mine!
Oh, and since I had 3 egg yolks leftover, I just had to make some ice cream base, so look for that recipe in a couple days!
