Each day visit us here on the Dish for a peek at new holiday cookies, party-planning tips and top techniques for rolling, spooning, slicing, baking and decorating delicious sweet treats to give – or keep – from favorite Food Network chefs. Then visit Cooking Channel's blog for great takes on holiday baking from Cooking Channel chefs and Food People alike – cookies by the dozen to celebrate all season.
Crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside—those are the qualities of a perfect Coconut Macaroon, and Ina Garten’s recipe will guarantee you get celebratory results every time. All you have to do is pull together a mere five ingredients and bake them until their frilly tops are kissed with gold. Then arrange them on a pretty plate and pass them around.
