Dixie's StoryI've been in the USA for 6 yrs now and i crave for Filipino foods.... one of them is the macaroons... but i can't find the same taste of the macaroons that I was used to eating back home... so i tried a lot of recipes and finally came up with the perfect coconut macaroons that taste like the one's i buy from the bakeshops in the Philippines... I always bring this macaroons to our Filipino get-togethers and they all love it and ask for the recipe...
This is also the ones i baked and gave away for Christmas Present!
Hope you all like it too!
