fruit pizza cookie

One of my favorite cookies to make is a little more than a cookie, but is very impressive for showing off to friends but super easy! It has a sugar cookie as a base, with a mixture of 1 part cream cheese 1 jar marshmellow cream whipped together, then topped with sliced fresh fruit. I prefer strawberries, grapes and kiwi bc they hold up nicely. For example bananas and apples turn brown quick. But you can add any type of fruit or any topping for that matter that you like (maybe nuts or chocolate chips) The only thing is that after they start to get mushy from the cream so they're not the best the next day, but there probably won't be any leftover, they are a crowdpleaser!!

Lindt Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

4 ounces (115 grams) semi sweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped (I use Lindt dark chocolate)
3 large (90 grams) egg whites
1/4 cup (25 grams) cocoa powder
3/4 cup (150 grams) granulated white sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups (220 grams) sweetened coconut

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (170 degrees C) and line two Baking sheeta with parchment paper.
In a stainless steel bowl, over a saucepan of simmering water, melt the chocolate. Set aside.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the egg whites, cocoa powder, sugar, salt, and vanilla extract. Stir in the coconut and melted chocolate, making sure the coconut is well coated. If the mixture is too soft, refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
Place small mounds (about 1 tablespoon) of the dough on the parchment-lined baking sheet, spacing several inches apart. Bake for about 15 or until the macaroons are shiny. Remove from oven and let cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes and then place on a wire rack to cool.

Makes about 20 Macaroons.
