Coconut Key Lime Macaroons1

So I let you all have a little break since I last posted about my lime addiction. Remember how I shared some Key Lime Pie Ice Cream and Key Lime Poke Cake? DELICIOUS! Today’s recipe for Coconut Key Lime Macaroons is mind blowing! Like, my friend Jessica at A Kitchen Addiction posted these Coconut Lime Macaroons to her site, and it was like our souls united! You all know I love lime, but Coconut-Lime is like the perfect pair! Try my Frozen Coconut Limeade and tell me it’s not the best flavor combination in the whole world!

 

I am crazy in love with these cookies! They were everything I hoped they would be! Sweet and coconutty with the perfect tang of key lime! My husband took the leftovers to work, because I taste everything and then send it out of our house so I don’t get fat, and EVERYONE raved about them! I think he mentioned someone saying they were, “the best cookies” they had ever eaten! I can definitely attest to the fact that they are top notch! As much as I love coconut-lime creations, I do love a good caramel pretzel chocolate chip cookie, but these are my favorite fruity cookies for sure! These would be the perfect elegant summery dessert for a baby shower or party, or anything for that matter. Make up an excuse to make these!
