I grew up eating chocolate macaroons, and until last month had never tried a regular macaroon. I tried one in San Francisco and WOW, it was fantastic! I do love coconut after all! So for a quick and easy dessert to take to Thanksgiving dinner at my aunt’s, I decided to whip up a batch. These are so easy to make and they taste yummy, although next time I will cut back on the almond extract as it seemed to be very potent. I wasn’t sure how well received they would be but many of my aunts and uncles seemed to like them, so it seems they are a winner! I drizzled a few with chocolate (leftover mini Hersheys bars from Halloween!)
