I’m back from a wonderful holiday. We climbed rocks beneath amazing waterfalls, walked through unbelievable Sequoia trunks, and sipped coffee without rushing off anywhere. It was relaxing and rejuvenating.
And I so hope you enjoyed your food “drop-off” while I was away. I’m sorry I couldn’t get your dessert to you any sooner, but here it is!
If you’re celebrating Passover this weekend, please never mind the delicious Rosemary Garlic Pork Chops I “delivered” on Tuesday ;-), but please do partake in these super yummy, gluten-free, perfect-for-Passover Salted Dulce De Leche Macaroons!
Every year, we are fortunate enough to share a lovely seder with close friends, and this year I’m bringing these cookies. And I’m also bringing them to an Easter brunch the next day! What a delightful weekend to look forward to!
- 1 egg white
- ⅓ cup granulated sugar
- ¾ teaspoon coarse sea salt (plus a bit more for sprinkling)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup dulce de leche
- 2 cups very finely shredded, unsweetened coconut
- ¼ cup finely chopped semisweet chocolate, melted
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and cover two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
- In a medium-sized mixing bowl, use a whisk to whip the egg white until it's frothy, about 30 seconds. Add the sugar, salt, vanilla, and dulce de leche -- mix to blend. Then use a spoon to mix in the coconut.
Using a 1¼-inch ice-cream scoop or a spoon, form approximately 1 to 2 inch balls of dough and place them on the parchment-covered baking sheets, spacing them about 2-inches apart. Sprinkle each ball of batter with a bit more sea salt, and then bake in the preheated oven just until the cookies become golden brown along the edges, about 15 minutes.
- Once they are cool, drizzle them with melted chocolate and serve!
1 day ahead: Make your own dulce de leche!
1 hour ahead: Make the batter, bake and cool the cookies.
These cookies will keep in an airtight container for a few days, but are best the day they are made. You can also freeze them in an airtight container for a couple of weeks.
