Not just coconut and chocolate macaroons, but red velvet macaroons. What does that mean exactly? Well, it means a cake (or in this case cookie) that is reddish brown in color, generally with some kind of white icing. (Red food coloring or beets are often used to amp up the red color.)

Today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Gluten-Free Cookie Theme Week. The cookies this week may or may not be 100% technically gluten-free, but they are pretty darn close. That is, I've looked for cookies with are no obvious wheat/gluten ingredients.
