Salted Caramel Macaroon. A creamy, salty caramel switch up on an old Holiday favorite:
After baking the standard mararoon cookie recipe, (below), while still warm, press a spoon in the centers for an indentation. Fill the dip with caramel filling and wait to cool. Sprinkle coarse sea salt atop.
Caramel filling: Use one or two of the Christmas caramels you can't stop making or a Kraft rip-off. Microwave them for a moment to soften, then add a teaspoon of milk or cream to thin slightly. Spoon a drop into the centers and cool. After these cool, sprinkle coarse sea salt atop.

Happy Valentines Day!! Fast, easy and delicious
Easy Coconut Macaroons
Great Grandma Bezzant made these for me for the holiday buffet. I love people who don't have this nasty disease, but still want me to feel loved. My husband's 93 year old grandmother, even though she suffers from macro-degeneration and is legally blind, still makes the effort to study up on gluten-free and bakes these for me.
If I ever grow up, I want to be just like her.
|EASY COCONUT MACAROONS|
Mix all ingredients together and drop onto greased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cookies set before removing from cookie sheet.
I halved the batch and it still makes a lot, (Particularly when you are the only coconut lover in the house.) Dipped in chocolate, these would make a delicious "Mounds" bar for Valentines.
...whatever am i going to do with a half can of sweetened condensed milk?
