Passover: Macaroons Part II

Scratch last year's Martha macaroons. Throw those hockey pucks out! These, following, are my mom-in-law's and they are to die for. Chewy and crunchy at the same time. She uses matzo cake meal instead of matzo meal—good call!

And, shocker, I added chocolate chips. Happy Pesach!

Mom's Better Macaroons
1 1/3 c. shredded coconut
1/3 c. sugar
3 T. Manischewitz matzo cake meal
2 egg whites
1/2 t. vanilla extract
chocolate chips, to taste

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine coconut, sugar, and cake meal in bowl. Stir egg whites and vanilla in a cup, add to coconut mixture, and combine completely. Add chocolate chips, to taste. Drop by cookie scoop on nonstick or lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for about 22–25 minutes until edges are golden brown. Remove from pan immediately or else they will stick.

I love Scouty's look of utter desperation...

Very interesting. The ones J made didn't have any matzah cake meal in them. I want them!
