    Chef Joey Z.'s Note:

    My DH doesn't like macaroons, but he liked these a lot. I didn't use any sugar sweetened ingredients in this (though you could) and it satisfied my sweet tooth as well. It's a very simple recipe that takes a little time to prepare, but it's well worth the effort. Keep these little gems cold otherwise they will fall apart.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 10

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut (I used shredded)
    • 3 drops almond extract (I used organic)
    • 3 3/4 ounces unsweetened organic chocolate (melted)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat your oven to 350'F.
    2. 2
      On a baking sheet with a silpat liner (or parchment paper) spread the coconut out and toast it for about 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      On occasion mix the coconut up to balance out the toasting. Keep an eye on it, some ovens are hotter then others. This should take about 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      When it's a toasty golden brown shade remove from the oven and cool completely. The chocolate won't adhere to the coconut if the coconut is still warm.
    5. 5
      Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over lightly simmering water. The amount of chocolate is quite small, but it is enough for this recipe.
    6. 6
      In a medium bowl combine the toasted coconut, almond extract and melted organic chocolate.
    7. 7
      Stir the mixture until the coconut is totally coated with the melted chocolate.
    8. 8
      Using a tablespoon measure press the mixture into the spoon then plop onto a lined baking sheet, make sure your baking sheet is cold, not warm. I used a silpat sheet so the cookie wouldn't stick. It worked perfectly. Parchment would probably work too.
    9. 9
      Place the sheet of cookies into the fridge to firm up for about 20 mintues or longer.
    10. 10
      These will keep in the fridge for about 3 days, but bet they will get eaten up before that.
    11. 11
      Bon Appetit!
