Cin's version of "Kathy Reed's Easy Coconut Macaroons"

Straws Kitchen


Macaroons are one of my most favorite when I found these, I just had to make them.

Kathy posted this recipe back in early July and it is the only recipe she has posted...I kept waiting for her to post more recipes.

When I first saw these I told Kathy, "boy, when you said 'easy' really meant EASY!!!"

I also told her..."Kathy, I can't tell you how many people I've given a taste of your cookies to. Everywhere I take a batch they are gobbled up and all you hear
are oooooooohs an aaawwwwwwws".

I have not had any responses from her at all.

I made a batch and took them to the nursing home and they went crazy over them.
I made another batch and took them to a reunion and they loved them too.

I made these a bit different from the way Kathy did and wanted to post my version with my pix.
