Coconut lovers - these are delicious! Recipe makes about 45 cookies.
1 stick unsalted butter, room temp
3/4 cup sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
2 tsp. finely grated orange peel
24 oz sweetened coconut flakes
6 oz bittersweet chocolate, melted
Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 325. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper. Using mixer, beat butter until smooth. Add sugar and salt. Add eggs one at a time. Mix in coconut and stir together. Add orange peel and stir together. Drop onto baking sheets by spoonfuls. Bake 1 sheet at a time for 20-25 minutes, until lightly browned. (my oven cooks fast so I baked for about 15 mins). Cool. Using fork, drizzle chocolate over macaroons. Chill 30 minutes.
