So I dug out my old recipe for Macaroon Kisses and made them today, they take a lot longer to make then the other ones, and have many more ingredients in them...including CHOCOLATE!!!  Jeff said the other ones were not that bad, and I should not compare the recipes as they are completely different.

Macaroon Kisses

1/3 cup butter

3 oz. cream cheese

3/4 cup sugar

Cream these three ingredients together until fluffy.


1 egg yolk

2 tsp. almond extract

2 tsp. orange juice

Mix all together.

Now add your dry ingredients

1 1/2 cup flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

Mix well.

Now stir in 3 cups of coconut (get a 14 oz, bag, you'll use the rest after)

Chill for one hour. Shape into balls and roll into remaining coconut.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden, I put them on parchment paper lined cookie sheet to cook. Press an unwrapped Hersheys Kiss in the middle of each when they come out of the oven.

This recipe makes approx. 32 cookies - Let me know if you like them.

Don't they look cute cooling on the rack?  It takes a few hours for the kiss to firm up.

I had leftover coconut, and I didn't want to throw it away and I didn't want to re-use it cause I had been rolling the cookie dough in it and it used a raw egg, so I toasted it in the oven.

Crunchy sweet goodness! Yum!

Well I have already lost the race to finish Burned before Mandy, she finished hers in one day!  I am only on chapter 13.  But it is really good.  So I am off to read some more.

Have a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping in!
