Easy Coconut Macaroons

    45 mins

    Simple coconut macaroons; no separating eggs or whisking whites!! I've tried lots of recipes but find this gives the most moist and flavourful result! Use your choice of decorations - I like to use glace cherries and then, when they've cooled - drizzle melted choc on top.
