macaroons

ok, i’ve made these before, they are SCRUMPTIOUS.  but you hafta know, there’s an hour chilling time in the middle there.  that throws me every time.

Macaroons

1/3 c butter, softened

3 oz cream cheese, softened

3/4 c sugar

1 egg yolk

2t almond extract

2t OJ

1 1/4 c flour

2t baking powder

1/4t salt

5c coconut, divided

beat butter, cream cheese, sugar.  add yolk, almond ext, and oj.  beat well.

sift together flour, baking powder and salt, add to butter mixture.  stir in 3c coconut.  cover, chill 1 hour.

shape into 1″ balls, roll in left over coconut. 

bake 10-12 minutes at 350 until lightly browned.

if you like, you can stick a Hershey’s Kiss in them right when they come out of the oven, but i didn’t bother this time.  dark chocolate ones, or mint ones are VERY tasty in these cookies.
