Fabulous Coconut Macaroons

These are my co-worker's Coconut Macaroons! She has an innate ability to find fantastic cookie recipes.  I'm sure I've seen her wandering about with a little divining spatula in her hands. These are delicious sweet little clouds of coconut with just the perfect amount of sweetness.  A little advice to the uninitiated - do not make these when you are alone or you will eat every single one by yourself.

Preheat oven to 325°

4 egg whites
1 tsp almond extract
4 cups coconut
1 cup sugar

Beat egg white until frothy. Add almond extract and mix more.
Fold in coconut and sugar.
Drop into aproximately 1in circles (a mini muffin scoop is perfect for this) and place on cookie tray (works best when lined with parchment paper if not then greased.

Bake for 20 minutes. Brown a little on top if you like (broil for no more than 3 minutes.

  1. I am on day 2 of a 'give up real sugar' phase. Would it be possible for you to only post vegetable dishes for the next little while? Recipes like this and the Indian rice pudding are too tempting not to make!
