Coconut Macaroons

I make these cookies A LOT!  They are a big hit everywhere I bring them.  If you are a fan of coconut, these are the cookies for you! It's one of those recipes that I don't need to bother measuring anymore and it always comes out delicious.  The trick is to let them get pretty dark and toasted and then the sugar and coconut will caramelize on the bottom of the good!


cups sweetened coconut
½ cup sugar
3 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of salt


Line a baking sheet with a silpat baking liner or parchment paper. Mix together all ingredients in a medium bowl until moistened. With damp hands form small haystack shapes on prepared baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until cookies are golden brown. Let cool slightly before transferring to a cooling rack. They are also delicious if you dip the bottoms in melted chocolate. Just let harden well before packing up.
