For the beginning of some Christmas baking I decided to try something I have never made before this year. I searched about a dozen recipes before I found this video from Alton Brown. I liked the idea of topping the macaroon with some dark chocolate, even though they were fantastic right from the oven without the chocolate!
The edges were crispy, the middle nice and chewy. I'm not a huge fan of coconut, except when it is toasted or baked. These were fantastic, A definite keeper.
Alton uses chopped macadamias, I used chopped pecans. Any chopped nut would work, whatever your favorite nut may be.
NOTE: My oldest stopped over tonight and ended up taking over a dozen home with him, he thought they were awesome and wanted to take some to a friends house! I told you they were good!!
I'm joining Foodie Friday, stop by for some great Christmas goodies!
Thanks For Stopping By...
