So it’s finally spring. And it actually feels pretty spring like here. The sun has been shining. We’ve had lots of temperatures in the fifties. One meteorologist event guaranteed we wouldn’t have any more measureable snow. Life is pretty good!
We have lots of spring in the house too. In the form of ladybugs. Lots of ladybugs.
We have always had some ladybugs in the house over the winter. That’s right. Somehow ladybugs make it through these apocalyptic feeling winters and show up, unannounced in our house.
But this year, it’s been different. There have been lady bugs EVERYWHERE. We have to watch where we step so we don’t crush them. They crawl on the floors, walls, windows. They relish the sun and hide in the shade.
Since the weather has been nicer, we’ve been putting them outside, but it seems like they come right back in.
There are far worse problems to have. Ladybugs are, after all, supposed to be good luck, and we can use all the luck we can get.
You all are pretty lucky that I’m sharing these delightful Blueberry Coconut Macaroons with you. Plain old coconut macaroons are a hit with me, but adding blueberries, one of my favorite fruits, makes them totally irresistible.
These are easy to make, elegant, and feed a crowd. Plus, they are gluten free! Welcome in spring with these fun macaroons and some lucky ladybugs!
1 12 ounce bag shredded unsweetened coconut
1 cup granulated sugar
3 large egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
1 ½ cups fresh blueberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
In a large bowl, stir together coconut and sugar. Mix in the egg whites and vanilla bean paste.
Place the blueberries in a small bowl. Gently crush some of them, while leaving others whole. Mix the blueberries into the coconut mixture.
Place 1 ½ to 2 inch mounds of the mixture onto the prepared pan, pressing each together as much as possible. You do not have to space the cookies far apart, as they will not spread.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown on top and mostly set. Allow to cool completely on pan before serving or storing. Cookies may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or frozen, wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in a zipper bag for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature for about an hour.
