Tasty Tuesday ~~ Mahvelous Macaroons

Poor Kat & husband GMR. With the view, the weather, the sights, critters, great company, relaxation and master chef meals, I can't get my husband to head back to the swamps of Louisiana! We are a friend's worst nightmare ------ the company that would.not.leave. LOL

Today's grand culinary offering is a wonderful dessert we had the other night. Mmmm, and yes, it was as yummy as the photo looks.

Chocolate Almond Macaroons

3/4 cup sweet condensed milk
14-oz. pkg. sweetened flaked coconut
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/8 tsp. salt
24 whole unblanched almonds
1/2 cup dark chocolate morsels

Stir first four ingredients together. Drop dough by lightly greased tablespoons onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Press an almond into the top of each cookie. Bake at 350 for 15-17 minutes until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.

Microwave 1/2 cup. chocolate morsels on high for 1 minute and 15 seconds, or until smooth and melted. Stir every thirty seconds of time. Spoon into a zippered freezer bag; cut a very small hole in corner of bag. Pipe chocolate over cooled cookies. (Makes about 2 dozen.)

Macaroons are my absolute FAVORITE!

We go to the Vietnamese bakery to get them. I haven't turned on my oven in a month, it's too hot!
