Heavenly Macaroons for Mother's Day

I'm remembering my Mom with one of her favorite treats!  Oh, how she loved macaroons.  I'm also having some Bigelow Toasted Coconut Tea to sip with them.  My mom embroidered this beautiful cloth, and it's a favorite of mine.  I picked some dianthus from my yard, along with some bacopa.  Happy Mother's Day to all women who care for and love others, whether they be people of all ages or pets. 

This is the fifth trio that I'm sharing from my Great Aunt Kitty.  I thought that it looked pretty on the tablecloth.

A lot of love went into all this stitching.  I guess my Mom gave these treasures to me, because she knew that I'd take care of them.

My Mom gave me this teapot, too.  I'm thinking that she probably bought it at a thrift store because she loved looking for bargains.  


My Mom loved these cookies, and they are so easy!


Here's a picture of my beautiful Mom on my wedding day.  She made her outfit. It was a sleeveless dress with a matching coat.   Isn't it pretty?

 

Cissy made her Confirmation on May 1st.  Her sponsor was her brother, Riley, to the left of her.

Heavenly Macaroons

Heavenly Macaroons

My beloved mom loved macaroons and these indeed are heavenly. I wish I could share some with my mom right now.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1- 14 oz pkg of sweetened coconut
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoons almond extract 
  • melted semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional) if you'd like to dip the bottoms of the macaroon after they are baked
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, coconut and salt. Stir in the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla and almond extracts, and using your hands, or a wooden spoon, mix until well blended. Use an ice cream scoop to drop dough onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about golf ball size.
  2. Bake for 15-18  minutes in the preheated oven, until coconut is toasted.
  3. Cool on wire racks, and if desired, dip the bottoms of the macaroons in melted chocolate.
