    Nancy's Pantry's Note:

    Since this is a firm dough, the macaroons will hold their shape during baking and produce large mound-shaped cookies which, appropriately enough, contain pieces of Mounds candy bars. Recipe is from Bon Appetit magazine. Prep time does not include refrigeration time for chocolate to set up.

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
    2. 2
      Combine flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Using electric mixer, beat sugar, cream cheese and butter in large bowl until fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla, almond extract and orange peel. Add flour mixture and mix just until combined. Stir in 2 1/2 cups coconut. Add Mounds pieces and stir until combined.
    3. 3
      Spread 1 1/4 cups coconut on plate. Using 2 tablespoons dough for each cookie, roll dough into 1 1/2 inch rounds. Roll each round in coconut. Arrange rounds 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Bake until cookies are puffed and coconut is lightly golden, about 35 minutes. Cool on cookie sheets 5 minutes. Transfer to racks; cool completely.
    4. 4

      These were very yummy! I did make two changes though I didn't roll them in the coconut, and I didn't do the chocolate drizzle. Otherwise, made as directed. Soooo good, Nancy, thanks for posting!
