I absolutely love Coconut Macaroons (not to be confused with Macarons which are the Classic French Pastry Cookie). Macaroon v Macaron may only be different by 1 letter, but are SO much different in terms of what they are and the difficulty level. My Macaroon is beyond easy - with literally 5 ingredients, these cookies are not only simple, but delicious!
Makes about 20-25 cookies
- 3 Egg Whites
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
- 14 Ounce Sweetened Coconut Flakes
- Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, combine your egg whites, sugar, salt and vanilla. Mix together with a spatula until combined. Fold in your shredded coconut.
- On a silpat lined baking sheet, use an ice cream scoop to scoop even mounds of cookie on to the sheet. You should get about 20-25 cookies. Bake in the oven for about 25-30 minutes (you want the tops to start lightly turning brown).
- Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes on the baking sheet. Remove and place on a wire rack to finish cooling down. *Note: you can also melt chocolate and drizzle this on top for some extra pizazz!
