Easter and Passover Gluten Free Macaroons

A Passover and Easter Favorite Cookie Recipe

I've shared this recipe before around the Christmas holiday, but it's such a favorite that I thought I would put a new twist on it for Easter and Passover to share just how much fun and versatile this little cookie can be. My Coconut Macaroon's can be dress up and fancy, simple and tasty, or in this example fun and playful. There are three great things about this cookie. The best part about these is the taste. The second best part is that they are gluten free. Lastly they take very little time or ingredients to prepare so they are quick, easy, and always fresh.
