Almond and Chocolate Chip Passover Macaroons

Macaroons made with sweetened coconut, egg whites and sugar. Non gluten!!! Commonly eaten as a basic dessert coookie for Passover. The almond macaroons have almond extract in them and an almond on top. Chocolate chips were added to the coconut mixture.

 

I arranged them like the Star of David. I painted the background to exemplify the parting of the Red Sea. Moses somehow parted it to get the Hebrew people across and away from slavery in Egypt. Many theories on this and we may never know how and if it actually happened.

 

This is a much different take on the spiritual "Let My People Go" by Paul Robeson. This version has always made me cry. Paul Robeson was an actor /concert singer and political activist. Paul Robeson appeared as Othello , sang Ole Man river in Showboat and then dedicated his life to political causes. He was blacklisted for being a card carrying Communist and died in obscurity while living in Philadelphia.
