Almond Joy Coconut Macaroons. 

Tomorrow Evan has Demo Day for his new app at the school he has been attending for three months. It’s his last day! He has been working non-stop, day and night learning how to code and program, and I couldn’t be any more proud.

So of course, in celebration, I wanted to make some treats for when his family comes into town this weekend. I also wanted to make something I haven’t made before. As we all know, it takes practice to make perfect. Not that any dessert or treat that I’ve made tons of times turns out perfect, but at least edible and tastey.

I get to put in the work, and enjoy the outcome.
