How to Make a Classic Baked Macaroni & Cheese

When looking for the ultimate comfort food this classic baked macaroni & cheese is bound to hit the spot. The use of multiple cheeses makes this recipe irresistable.

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place coconut, cornstarch, sugar, egg whites and extract in a heatproof bowl and mix well.
Set the bowl over a pot of boiling water (or use a double boiler). Heat, stirring until the mixture thickens, then remove from heat and set aside, about 4 minutes.
Scoop out macaroons, about a scant tablespoonful, and place on ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly golden but still soft and chewy. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
If dipping:
Place chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl and heat on HIGH power for 1 minute. Stir until smooth, microwaving in additional 15 second increments if needed. Then, dip bottoms of cookies in chocolate, allowing excess to drip back into bowl. Place on a parchment or waxed paper lined baking sheet in refrigerator to set.
