First Place Coconut Macaroons
THESE COOKIES earned me a first-place ribbon at the county fair. They remain my husband's favorites—whenever I make them to give away, he always asks me where his batch is!
I especially like the fact that the recipe makes a small enough batch for the two of us to nibble on. —Penny Ann Habeck
