CocoMcJammies! I like the way that sounds. CO-CO-MC-JAMMIES. Say that out loud, and let it roll of your tongue a couple of times.
I bet you are doing a little dance, a bit of a shoulder move here and there too. It’s ok, go with it!
This recipe was called Hawaiian Blackberry Jam Slices from Allrecipes. Yep, that’s what they are, but after making the slices, I thought, why categorize these treats into a particular shape? I think a round thumbprint type cookie would work out well. Calling it slices seems a bit blah for such a cool five ingredient dessert.
On The Foodie Affair’s Facebook page where I give you a peek of what recipe I’m working on, I commented that I wanted help with a new name! Thank you, Michele, Eva, Laura, and Sharon for your suggestions! Rebecca came up with CocoMcJammies, which seems to go hand in hand with this tropical dessert perfectly! Thank you, Rebecca! You will be getting a little care package from me for your creative title!
- 1 1/4 cup (about 6 ounces) roasted, salted macadamia nuts
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 1 1/2 cups sweetened, flaked coconut
- 2 large egg whites
- 1/2 cup Jam, homemade or store bought
- HOMEMADE BLACKBERRY JAM
- 2 cups blackberries
- 1/3 cup sugar (I used xylitol)
Add the blackberry jam immediately after coming out of the oven and let cool. After about 30 minutes, cut the log in 1/2" slices. If the jam is too thick, warm it in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
If you are keeping your diet gluten-free, this dessert is for you. These treats have no flour. The texture is like a macaroon. The added jam adds a nice blend of flavor.
I kept the Blackberry Jam simple, but you could add a squeeze of lemon juice or a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla if you would like.
I had strawberry sauce in my refrigerator that I added to some of the CocoMcJammies. The strawberry sauce wasn’t as thick as the blackberry jam, so I noticed that the cookies got moist quicker than I would have liked. I recommend adding the jam right before eating and keeping them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
I can totally envision a nice cup of Earl Gray tea with a few CocoMcJammies. What do you think?!
CocoMcJammies, CocoMcJammies, CocoMcJammies. Now say that ten times fast 🙂
