There are many recipes for these cookies. Easter Coconut Macaroon Cookies are a cookie favorite that mom use to make every year for Easter. Some folks use condensed milk, we she never did. I have tried some of the other recipes along the way and always come back to this one. When I was a little girl, mom would make these as a treat at Easter.
I could never understand why we only made these once a year because they are by far the easiest cookie to make and so delicious. I love that there aren't many ingredients.
Mom and I were absolutely huge lovers of coconut. Sometimes she would even tint the coconut green first, let it dry and add to looks like grass. I think back in those days coconut was something of a luxury to buy back in the 1960's.
I made these for Easter this year in her memory. They look adorable decorated with jelly beans as she did for the grandchildren back then. Get creative, they taste like a famous candy bar.
