Tres Leches Coconut Macaroons

Tres Leches Coconut Macaroons

My mom loves coconut macaroons, and all coconut desserts, really. So growing up we ate a lot of coconut paletas (sort of an ice-creamy popsicle), coconut cakes, and cakes covered in coconut. If you like coconut, too, you will love these cookies!
