Coconut Macaroon Nest Shortbread Cookie Tarts (Vegan)

Happy Good Friday you guys!

Wait….. do people say that? Merry Good Friday? How about, Jolly Good Friday my good fellows? Yeah, I’m totally going with that last one (and of course a super thick and cheesy British accent is required to go with it). I think I’ll try to keep things short today since it’s a holiday weekend and stuff.

So, I know I’ve already worn your ears off complaining about Easter being so early this year, but I can’t seem to keep myself from saying it again right now. It’s just really lame though, don’t you agree?  I’m racking my brain to find things to look forward to in April but without having Springtime down here it’s looking pretty drab. At least I’ve got something awesome planned for next Friday because it’s April first and we all know what that means. Hey, does anyone have any good harmless, but hilarious, prank ideas? My siblings and I have never really been pranksters but I can remember some childhood friends who really got into it. Personally, I think it can be fun to have a prank or two as long as they aren’t destructive or hurtful in any way.

As for these little cookie tarts, you guys have to try them! They’d be a great way to use up any leftover Easter candy over the next few weeks and even if Easter is over, they’ll still make a great treat for the whole rest of the season. Oooh, and then for summer you could ditch the eggs and top them with red, white, and blue berries and I’m picturing them smothered in chocolate for when Autumn rolls around. Then if you want to give them a good dusting of powdered sugar “snow” they’ll fit right in with your Winter goodies. See, these are adaptable for every season not just Spring.

What I love about them is that they aren’t over the top rich for a change. In fact, they’re so balanced that they could be downright addictive so be warned. They’re also convenient because you use your eggs whites to make the macaroon topping layer and then the yolks to make the shortbread crust part so you won’t be left with any lonely egg halves, yay!

Alrighty, I hope you guys all have fun weekends! Happy Easter!
