  1. Thanks Lisa,

    The macaroons are delicious, a much enjoyed tropical Christmas treat, not too sweet, just right, with the lovely moist coconut taste of the tropics. Perfect for Christmas gifts. Thanks for the recipe. You have so many exciting recipes here, superb presentation and food photography - well done you!
    Cheers,
    Mum.
