Coconut Macaroons

August 10, 2010

There’s something about a simple cookie that makes me happy. These combine coconut with almond extract and whipped egg whites for a crispy, smooth treat. This recipe will make about a dozen cookies.

You will need…

  • 3 egg whites, beaten stiff
  • 1/8 t salt
  • 1/3 c plus scant 1/4 c sugar
  • 1/2 t almond extract
  • 1/4 t vanilla extract
  • 3 T flour
  • 1 2/3 c flaked coconut

Then you…

  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Combine the egg whites, salt, sugar, extracts and flour in a small bowl. Mix in the coconut.
  3. Drop the cookies onto a greased cookie sheet and baked 10-15 minutes, or until it is just turning golden on the edges.  Remove from oven and allow to cool!  And remember, you could always drizzle or dip in chocolate. Yumm!
