I made a lot of these “Robin’s Nest” cookies for a Senior Citizen’s Spring Tea I was helping out with and they were a bit hit. Just make your favourite chocolate macaroon recipe and poke a little Robin’s egg blue jelly bean on the top of each.
I’m not usually very “Martha Stewart” but, yes, I have to admit that I did stand at the bulk bin and pick out all the jelly beans that were this pretty blue colour.
It was worth it.
My macaroon recipe follows in case you don’t have one of your own.
