Macaroons

Awhile ago my youngest sister came to visit (really to do some laundry ;) ). But she was in a baking mood so she decided since she had never made Macaroons she needed to make some! They turned out delicious! She made the cookies and I drizzled the chocolate over them, have I ever mentioned I'm a choco-holic? ;) We found this recipe off a bag of coconut.

Macaroons

1/4 cup Flour
2/3 cup Granulated Sugar
1/4 tsp. Salt
2 2/3 cup Flaked Coconut
4 Egg Whites
1 tsp Almond Extract
1 cup chopped Almonds (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine flour, sugar, salt and coconut in mixing bowl. Stir in egg whites and almond extract. Stir in chopped almonds (optional); Mix well. Drop teaspoon fulls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet, cool on racks. Makes 2 1/2 dozen soft cookies.

Drizzle chocolate over them. (optional)

  2. They are slightly chewy due to the coconut in them. The bottom was slightly crispy. Hope that helps. :)
