My poor daughter is sick for the first time. This is the first time I’m experiencing taking care of a sick child, and as a mother, it is so hard to watch her suffer. Luckily, it’s nothing big, (no H1N1), but even if it was only a few sniffles, it would still be hard to watch. I’ve spent 90% of the last day and a half with her in my arms. I know that when I am sick, cuddling always helps!!
Needless to say, I haven’t done much cooking in the last 2 days. It’s a bit difficult to do anything when you’ve got a 20 pound child in one arm! But these brownie coconut macaroon cookies – they would seriously be easy enough to make one-handed!! I do have to say, I’m not a big boxed brownie lover. I think from scratch is almost just as easy and a lot tastier. But I will seriously keep boxed brownie mixes on my shelf for these cookies! If you can’t decide which you are craving – a cookie or a brownie – then these coconut macaroons are for you. But they are addictive – I’m warning you now!
