"Special" Coconut Macaroons

It's Valentine's Day today!

I thought of writing some cheesy post about me and Hubby by sharing our love story but he said a big NO to it so there, I'll stop! Haha!  (Why am I not suprised?!)

But it's okay.  =)

Valentine's Day is a celebration of love!  So I thought of just sharing with you a recipe of a Filipino dessert (which can also be a snack) which I tried a few months ago. . . Coconut Macaroons!  I know I said Special Coconut Macaroons in the title.  What makes them "special"?  It is not the "What" but the "Why".  

I baked some (for the first time) for Hubby because  A) it is one of the few sweet things (or probably the only thing) he likes to eat (he doesn't have a sweet tooth at all!) and B) it reminds him of his Mom.  I didn't get the privilege to meet my mother-in-law (I wish I did!) because she passed away when Hubby was a Freshman in the  University.  

I've heard Hubby rave about his Mom's macaroons lots of times.  I know nothing will beat those (or can even come close!)--- and I'm not even going to try to! Haha!  But there is only one thing I can say about my macaroons.  They are all about LOVE and GRATITUDE.

To the man who loves me unconditionally and to the woman who raised his son to become a good man, Thank You for coming into my life. 

I got this recipe from Panlasang Pinoy.  It is so simple that you'll probably be finished prepping and mixing everything even before you finish saying . . . .supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!  Haha!  I am so happy with this recipe because I liked how the macaroons turned out (and I'm not macaroon lover at all!).  Hubby liked them too! Yayyy!  This recipe is a keeper.  The only thing I will change is I will use unsweetened coconut flakes because I found them a tad too sweet for my liking.

Happy Baking and Happy Valentine's Day!

Bake with love. . . spread some love!
