A few weeks ago, I blogged about homemade Chocolate Chip Macaroons. I had never made macaroons before and they were so much better than the ones in a can that I swore I’d never go back to the “packaged” macaroons again. But … the day before Passover started, I was at my local Tom Thumb grocery store finishing up some last minute shopping when I discovered the yummy item pictured above – a Manischewitz Kosher for Passover frozen macaroon dough. The dough comes in Coconut and Chocolate flavors, althoug my store only had the coconut.
The $6.49 price tag seemed way to high, but I was so tempted that I splurged and bought 1 package. Just before time for the holiday to start, my 6 year old daughter and I decided to make a batch of these macaroons.
The process was very simple: scoop out a tablespoon of the dough, place on greased cookie sheet, flatten the top a bit with the back of your spoon and bake.
We were amazed by how easy the macaroons were to prepare and even more so by how delicious they tasted. Our Seder guests asked me to pull the package out of the freezer so they could see exactly where this yummy dessert came from. No one believed the macaroons were made from a frozen dough.
I went back to Tom Thumb yesterday hoping the macaroons would be on sale so I could buy a few extras but no luck. Still $6.49 but also still a bunch left so I’ll be checking back next week as well.
If you have time, check the frozen kosher for Passover section at your local grocery store to see if they have this easy dessert. It’s definitely worth having in your freezer for those times you need to whip up a quick dessert for guests or even an after-school snack.
