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.
