Black Bottomed
Dolce De Leche

Black Bottomed Dolce de Leche Macaroons

Who doesn't like a chewy cookie?
Well Eagle Brand has a new flavour and it's
dolce de leche!
Now you don't have to make your own in the oven or stovetop, which if you have and I have
Takes hours to do!
The addition of condensed milk gives the macaroon a toothy chewiness and a rich colour.
3 cup desiccated coconut

3/4 cup dolce de leche condensed milk

1/4 tsp each salt & vanilla extract

2 lg egg whites


3 oz dark chocolate chopped, melted


In a mixer bowl with a whisk attachment, whisk eggs & salt to a stiff peak.

 Meanwhile in a med. bowl add coconut and vanilla to condensed milk and stir to incorporate.

Fold egg whites into the coconut mixture and fold to loosen the mixture.

Then add the rest of the whites to the bowl and fold gently with a spatula.

Using a spoon or small ice cream scoop, place dollops onto a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake in a preheat 325F oven and bake for 25 min until lightly browned.  Cool on racks completely.

Makes approx 60 small cookies.

Black Bottom:

Melt chocolate in a microwave, stirring to melt chunks.  Dip bottoms into the chocolate.  Allow excess to drip then firmly press the cookie down into the parchment lined baking sheet to allow the chocolate to squish up to the sides so that it is visible.

Allow to dry completely at room temp.

Cookies can be frozen separated by parchment/wax paper layers.

Enjoy with love!
