Goodies for the Retirement Center


Today is Tuesday and I go to the Tomball Retirement Center on Wednesday to pass around some smiles.  Today I made a few tasty treats....  Lemon blueberry pound cake with lemon glaze, Oatmeal cookies with toffee bits, raisins, chocolate chips and of course walnuts.. peanut butter cookies, and of course one of my favorites Coconut Macaroons!

So you like Macaroons do you...well I have an absolute fantastic recipe for Chewy Macaroons that will blow your mind and here it is:

7 oz flaked coconut or about 2 2/3 cups
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
4 egg whites
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/4 tsp salt
2 ounces semisweet chocolate Melted (this is for the chocolate drizzle)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees .  Lightly grease and flour large cookie sheet or use parchment paper
In a medium bowl combine all ingredients except the egg whites and extract.  Stir in egg whites and extract till mixed well and no lumps are remaining.
Drop rounded teaspoon fulls of mixture onto prepared cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake in preheated oven for about 20 to 25 minutes or until edges are golden brown.  Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool and cool completely.
Drizzle each cookie with a little of the melted chocolate and place cookies in the fridge so the chocolate will set.
Store for up to three day room temperature or up to 3 months in the freezer.  Should make about 20 cookies.
