Easy, tasty little treats. From a community cookbook from East Hampton.

Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients together and shape into 1 inch balls.
  2. Place about 1 1/2 inch apart on a lined or buttered cookie sheet.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until browned.
  4. Watch the first batch, since ovens vary so much.

Can't wait to try these cookies. I love macaroons and these look so pretty with the chocolate drizzled on them. Also, I grew up in East Hampton and wondered if you lived there at one time too.

Hi Mamie, thanks for a simple yet effective macaroon recipe. I 3/4'ed the recipe since I had a 300ml can of sweetened condensed milk, and got 24 little packages of moist and gooey coconutty goodness. Each round of six was a different experiment in size and cooking time. The results of the experiment? In my oven, 350 is a bit too hot, and 15 minutes is a bit too long. Optimum temp and time is about 325 for 13 minutes. And the best shape and size I found to be large, round and flat. For something fun, I piped chocolate stripes across the top of my macaroons, more for looks than for taste. So thanks for a great recipe, look forward to making it again!
