I first learned how to make gluten-free macaroons when I was running a pie shop/cafÃƒÂ© back in the day and I knew what gluten was, but had no idea I¬â„¢d be living a gluten-free lifestyle today! I was around 19 years old at this time. The pie shop/cafÃƒÂ© is where I really cut my teeth learning how to develop recipes on my own, as we had customer¬â„¢s come in and ask for special requests. I¬â„¢ve never been a big fan of coconut personally. I always made these little coconut gems for the pie shop/cafÃƒÂ© or for my mom. I had hopes I still had the recipe in my green metal recipe box my grandmother had given me? Going back through old family recipes towards the end of 2012, I found my old hand written recipe card for the coconut macaroons and had a good laugh at how my handwriting has changed over the years.
What I love about these cookies is their so easy to make and really delicious, as well as being a great treat you can eat at home, take to a party or share with your office mates.
