Today’s the reveal for June’s Fill the Cookie Jar. We’re a group of bloggers that are given a theme for the month and then need to bake a cookie based on the theme. It’s fun and I always know I’ll be baking at least a dozen cookies each month, that’s a win in my book!
This month’s theme was Father’s Day favorites. This was hard for me as my dad would have celebrated his 56th birthday on Tuesday, but he’ll be gone 6 years this August. My dad was diagnosed with melanoma in 2004 and fought a 4 year long battle. My dad loved these chocolate pudding cookies with walnuts, it was always the one cookie we made over the holidays, but I know he would have loved these coconut macaroons too. I remember we would go to a local farmer’s market and the Italian bakery would have these giant chocolate covered macaroons. They were so good especially as a child. So to honor my dad and celebrate his birthday, here’s a quick and simple recipe for these amazing, delicate cookies.
