Calling all coconut fans

Coconut is one of those ingredients that people are passionate about.  People either love it or they hate it - and I love it.  It goes without saying that my love of coconut translates to a love of macaroons.  Last week I made about 6 dozen of these delicious - fat free cookies.  My recipe is very basic and super simple to put together.


1 package of shredded coconut


1/4 teaspoon salt

6 Tablespoons flour   


4 egg whites

2/3 cup sugar     


1 teaspoon almond

Combine ingredients in a large bowl.

Shape into mounds using a medium sized cookie scoop and place on a silpat lined cookie sheet.

Bake 20 minutes at 350 until toasted on top.

Each batch of dough will make about 14 medium sized macaroons.  Sometimes I drizzle semisweet chocolate over the cooled macaroons for an extra special treat.  It's dangerous for me to make those because I want to eat them all.  If you love coconut - you will love these macaroons.

Bon Appetit!
