I love coconut macaroons. The small bit of flour gives them a little more density and better texture, even though traditional macaroons do not contain flour. I make these for Christmas cookie trays.

Anne's coconut macaroons are delicious! They have a crunchy, toasted coconut base with a sweet, soft coconut center. Easy to prepare, these macaroons are going to be a big hit on your Christmas cookie tray. If you want to make them even better, drizzle with a little bit of chocolate or caramel.
