The first time I ever heard of macaroons was as an undergraduate student at UC Irvine. I was reading Ibsen’s play, A Doll’s House, where in one scene, the main character Nora hides one of her favorite treats, macaroons, in her pockets, concealing them from her husband. To my chagrin, that’s the main thing I recall from that play! Go figure. I have discovered however that, like Nora, I too like macaroons. So, thinking I wanted to make something with my almost full bag of coconut flakes, I looked up a recipe for these sweet, scrumptuous treats. This recipe is from the Allrecipes website. It took me about 8 minutes to put the ingredients together, and another 25 minutes or so to bake. Hmmm, somehow I’m now inspired to reread A Doll’s House.
