Dessert shooters make a fun and unique treat to take to a party. My no bake piña colada cheesecake shooters are the perfect mini dessert for summer fun!  Some of my best ideas come after serious failures.

Gluten Free Coconut Macaroons

Crispy outside, chewy inside, perfectly moist gluten free coconut macaroons! Get the recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

Coconut macaroons take me back to childhood! My mother loves coconut, so she bought these frequently, and we could find them everywhere year-round, but especially in the spring around Passover and Easter. Coconut macaroons are often eaten during Passover because they contain no leaveners, and I feel like there’s coconut everything around Easter anyway. But because my mother loved them, coconut macaroons also mean Christmas for me because every year…

Coconut Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
