Key Lime Macaroons

We love key limes and I have a key lime tree that is producing like crazy. So I am making lots of recipes with key limes like these Key Lime Macaroons.

Eclectic Red Barn: Key Lime Coconut Macaroons

We came home from vacation and I harvested 40 key limes on Sunday, just off the ground. I juiced all of them and put the juice in the freezer. 

Then on Wednesday, I got another 60 key limes. Here is some of them. My key limes are pretty big and yellow as they ripen.

The tree is so loaded that the branches are hanging down and we had to prop up the branches so they wouldn't break.

I decided to make these macaroons. The great thing about this recipe is that they go together so quickly.

Macaroons made with key limes

My biggest problem in making these macaroons was trying to find green key limes to grate on top. All of mine are yellow. They all seem to be ripening at the same time. 

I keep asking all of my neighbors and friends if they want them. You can only use so many.
