I heard on the radio that macaroons were going to be the new hip food this decade. The following recipe is so much more than the sum of its ingredients. These toasty chewy gooey cookies take only a few minutes to prepare and they are staggeringly delicious.
I can only assume that the macaroon's future as "cookie of the decade" will be enhanced with all sorts of extra flavors like pineapple, candied ginger, peppermint bits, who knows? I like them just the way they are.
I have based this recipe on one from the back of a bag of coconut I once bought .
