Today is my son Tomás
Eugenio’s birthday. He’s finally turning 10 and like his mom, he’s a sweet
lover. So, I made these coconut macaroons that he adores. They evoke flavors of
my childhood: we used to have cocadas
(coconut smoothies), besitos de coco
kisses?) and coquitos
These macaroons are not only delicious, but super easy to make. I hope you like my recipe.

you can use an ice cream scoop or put the mixture into a pastry sleeve with a
