Coconut Macaroon Cookies

Hello everyone,

Recently I tried a coconut macroon cookie at a local bakery. It was good but a bit too sweet. Which immediately made me think that I needed to make a recipe of my own that has the sweetness level I desire. This was seriously the easiest cookie I’ve ever made!!! So let’s dive right into the recipe.

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups unsweetened, medium grated or shredded coconut
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 eggs
1/2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Melt butter in a medium saucepan, remove from heat and let cool for 2-3 minutes.  Stir in the coconut until well-coated with butter.

In a large bowl beat eggs. Add sugar and continue to beat until light and fluffy. Stir in vanilla extract.

Stir the coconut into the eggs until combined. Using a 1″ scoop drop batter onto the parchment paper lined baking sheet, giving almost an inch between cookie. Slightly flatten using the back of a spoon. Stir the batter occasionally as you work to reincorporate the melted butter.

Bake until golden, 8 to 10 minutes depending on the size of the cookie.

Makes about 18 cookies. If you desire dip in melted dark or semi sweet chocolate for a little extra indulgence.

Neapolitan Cookies & Ice Cream Super Quick & Easy Sweet Treat

This is a great dessert option when you just don’t have time to bake or simply are just not in the baking mood.  This sweet treat is perfect for the kids to make themselves.  All you need are store bought cookies of your choice.  Soft or cookies with a crunch will work perfectly.  For this treat I went with Whole Foods Fresh Baked Cookies.  They now sell a variety pack of 20 which contains 5 of each of the following sugar, oatmeal, chocolate with chocolate chips and chocolate chip for $9.99.  That is a great deal for Whole Foods.

To assemble I cut a sugar cookie and chocolate with chocolate chips in half and put a tablespoon of strawberry ice cream in between( you could of course opt for Frozen Yogurt as well) and came up with this delicious treat………………
