Cecelia’s Cookie Recipe

MACAROONS

Ingredients:

  •  1 1/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened chopped dates
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup almond flour(adjusted)
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/2 cup honey (or more to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt pinch ground anise or any other similar sweet spice optional

Instructions:
1. Mix all ingredients well. Adjust almond flour so that dough has a cookie dough consistency. I mean that you can take a spoonful and it holds together well.
2. Place walnut size pieces on a greased cookie sheet about 1 inch apart.
3. Bake at 350 F (180 C) for about 15 mins. or until edges and top are browned. Don’t overcook, you want them very moist in the middle.
