Wanted to try the Coconut macaroons, so I went to my old faithful cookbook like the one my mom had at home growning up. I actually bought this one at an antique store, cuz she said she wouldn't part with hers. It is exactly the same.
I found the coconut macaroon recipe along with how to release the cookie off of the baking sheet.. this book is wonderful, not only does it have ALLmade from scratch recipes but also all of these wonderful tips!
Thank you Betty Crocker, a much easier technique than the one in the cookbook I used for the last recipe.
Here they are fresh out of the oven, all puffy and light. I used a unsweetened coconut by Bob's Big Mill, it is perfect with the right amount of sugar the recipe called for. If I had used sweetened coconut I think it would have been too sweet.
I chocolate coated the bottoms and drizzled a little chocolate on top, cooled them in the fridge, then they all got a dustin' of powdered sugar.
Lined them up in an old cookie tin I have with wax paper lining the inside and top.
Another tin filled and ready for the shower...
Try makin' a batch, they remind me of a mounds bar, yummy...
Tomorrow night onto makin' my grandmothers potatoe salad.
