my midlife crisis.
i couldnt go to a party with out at least asking if i can bring something. (i will always ask. but if you say no, i will make the cookies anyways and eat them myself.) summer saved me from about 47,000 calories by letting me bring my macaroons.
i have had store bought macaroons, and oh. my. YUCK! heavy, tasteless, non-chocolate chip-y balls.
my family's are NOTHING like that. first, they have chocolate chips. and we all know chocolate makes everything taste better!
and the whole time i was there people were talking about them, and asking if i had tried them. (i had-that morning for breakfast i had 2.) i dont think they knew i brought them, and they werent the sales people so i know they werent trying to get my to buy anything.
i will give you my recipe and let you see for yourself.
¼ tsp. of salt
1 ½ cups of sugar
1 ½ cups flour
2 TBS of margerine, melted
4 cups (14 oz) coconut
2 cups (12 oz) milk chocolate chips
2 tsp. lemon rind
2 tsp. of vanilla
beat eggs and salt. add sugar. beat 5-7 minutes then mix in margarine. add flour, coconut, chocolate chips, lemon rinds and vanilla. i use a medium scoop from pamered chef to spoon them out. bake on lightly greased and floured cookie sheets (i actually use parchment paper).
bake at 350 for 12 minutes.
