With LOAD starting a couple of days ago, my new-to-me recipe resolution almost fell to the wayside. I hadn't gone grocery shopping this weekend, and haven't been feeling the greatest today, so I almost decided to wait until tomorrow. But then you know how THAT goes - 'tomorrow' never comes! :) So I remembered a recipe that I found before Christmas that I hadn't tried yet, and it wouldn't be too involved.
A little background information - I have a 'slight' obsession with macaroons. Back in 2009, I went to the Dominican Republic with a group of friends, and that resort had the BEST. MACAROONS. EVER! I may or may not have had my picture taken with them. (Okay, I did).
I may or may not have created a scrapbook layout with the alleged photo. (Okay, I did.)
I may or may not have eaten some every day we were there. (Okay, I did that too.)
And I may or may not have lightened the load of a catering truck on the beach one afternoon by 'relieving' it of a plate of macaroons. Alright, Alright! Sheesh. I did that too.
But you know what? As much as I LOVE macaroons, I've never made them before. ??? Crazy, huh? I can't say that anymore, though!
This week's recipe comes to you from Skinnytaste: http://www.skinnytaste.com/2012/04/coconut-macaroons.html
And the finished product!
I cooked mine longer than the recipe calls for; after 30 minutes, they still looked pretty white to me, and I tend to like my macaroons with a touch of brown on them. I'm really glad I made them! Making them myself will be much more affordable than travelling to the Dominican, LOL.
Thanks for looking!
