Chocolate Coconut Macaroons - type 1

2 cups flaked or shredded coconut
1/3 cup sugar
1 tbl light corn syrup
2 tbl flour
3 tbl unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 egg whites
Dash salt

Preheat oven to 325F. In a medium bowl, mix together coconut, sugar, corn syrup, flour and cocoa powder until well blended. Stir in vanilla, unbeaten egg whites, and salt until well mixed.

Using a small 1 1/2 inch diameter ice cream scoop or a generous tablespoonful, place 15 small mounds of coconut mixture 1 1/2 inches apart on a greased, foil-lined cookie sheet. Bake 18 to 22 minutes, until just set. Let cool on pan. When cool, carefully separate cookies from foil.

+ 2 tbl Shortening (or Margarine)
1/2 cup Cocoa (baking)
2 cup Sugar
4 Eggs
2 tsp Vanilla
2 cup Flour
2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Salt

Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Melt margarine or shortening, add cocoa and sugar. Mix well. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla, then add flour mixture. Chill until mixture is firm. Drop by teaspoons into a cup of powdered sugar, and roll in powdered sugar until ball is round in shape and covered with sugar. Bake on greased baking sheet for about 12 minutes at 375F.

1. Preheat oven to 325. Line baking sheets with foil; grease and flour foil. Set aside.

2. In large bowl, combine Sweetened Condensed Milk, vanilla and almond extract. Stir in coconut. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto foil-lined sheets; with spoon, slightly flatten each mound.
