I thought this photo of Hershey's Kisses Macaroon Cookies by CafeMom mandarose looked so delectable, that I just had to ask her for the recipe...



Hershey's Kisses Macaroon Cookies

1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened

1 package (3 oz.) cream cheese, softened

3/4 cup sugar

1 egg yolk

2 teaspoons almond extract

2 teaspoons orange juice

1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

5 cups sweetened coconut flakes, divided

48 Chocolate Kisses

1. Beat butter, cream cheese, and sugar in large bowl until well blended. Add egg yolk, almond extract and orange juice; beat well. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in 3 cups coconut.

2. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour or until firm enough to handle. Remove wrappers from chocolates. Heat oven to 350°F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll balls in remaining 2 cups coconut. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven; immediately press chocolate on top of each cookie. Cool 1 minute; carefully remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 4 dozen cookies.
