Oh my I came across a macroon recipe and I just have to share it with you all! I first tried this cookie at Fudruckers (funny I know) when I was pregnant and it instantly became my all time favorite. Why I had never had one before is beyond me. This is now my all time favorite sweet in the world I think.
(recipe from Paula Deen)
3 C shredded sweetened coconut
1 tsp almond extract or vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
2/3 C sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp cream of tartar
2 egg whites beaten stiff
1/2 C chocolate chips melted for drizzling
1. Preheat oven to 350. Mix coconut, almond extract, salt, milk and cream of tarter in a large bowl until combined. Fold in egg whites. With a large cookie scoop, scoop onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 13-16 minutes or until edges and tops of cookies are golden brown. Let cool completely. Drizzle melted chocolate over cookies. I put the chocolate in a ziplock, snip the edge and drizzle it.
12-15 large cookies
