Cranberry Almond Coconut Macaroons
This Cranberry Almond Coconut Macaroons recipe promises a tangy, sweet and crunchy variation of the traditional macaroon. This cookie recipe is fabulous, even plain, and adding these tart and crunchy elements only make these macaroons that much better. And the coup de grace for these lovely little cookies lies in the bitter sweet chocolate that you gently drizzle on top once the bake is through. Don’t leave this step out, or at least be sure to do this step on some of the cookies. Sometimes it may seem like there are just too many competing flavors in a dish, but this combination of cranberries, almonds and coconut are finished perfectly with chocolate. These cookies are good enough for a holiday bake, too, so keep them in mind when ’tis the Season. You will be glad you did!
These cookies are not at all difficult to make, and tiny hands will really enjoy helping out, particularly if you are rewarding them with chocolate chips and cranberry tidbits throughout. Little birds need plenty to keep their energy up and these two foods will do the trick. Cranberries are one of the best fruits you can eat. Choose the unsweetened variety, since they are much better. Cranberries are chock full of vitamins A, C, and K, as well as manganese and other minerals. Cranberries are well known to help prevent urinary tract infections. Whole, fresh or frozen cranberries (and dried) are the best nutritional sources, so try to eat those rather than drink juice.
These cookies are pretty and fabulous. Make them with unsweetened cranberries as well as unsweetened coconut. They will be much less sweet, and still every bit as fabulous. Also try to find unsweetened coconut that is diced in to slices rather than shredded. The slightly larger piece improves flavor and adds great texture to this cookie.
