Brownie Cookie Macaroons

20 Jul

Our dessert today was recommended by my friend Darci.  It is her husband’s favorite and, I must say, we quite enjoyed them as well.  They are Brownie Cookie Macaroons.  The recipe comes from Duncan Hines.  Super easy, gooey and delish.  Enjoy!

Ingredients:

1 box brownie mix (Duncan Hines recommends Double Fudge Decadent Brownie Mix)

2 cups coconut

2 tablespoons vegetable oil (next time I’m going to try using coconut oil for more coconut flavor)

2 tablespoons water

1 large egg

1 teaspoon coconut extract (optional) (I used coconut syrup from Starbucks)

cocoa powder for optional garnish

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray cookie sheets with nonstick spray or use parchment paper.

2.  In a large mixing bowl combine brownie mix and coconut; mix well.

3.  Mix in the oil, water, egg, contents of fudge packet (if using a brownie mix that contains one, it is not essential) and extract with a wooden spoon until all dry ingreidents are moistened (dough will be stiff) (Darci also adds 1 cup of chocolate chips for extra gooey goodness)

4. Shape dough into 1 inch balls.  Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet and flatten slightly.

5. Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges are set (centers will be slightly soft).  Do not overbake.  Trust me.  Leave ’em gooey.  Transfer cookies to wire rack with metal spatula and cool completely.

6. Garnish with a dusting of cocoa powder.
