These coconut macaroons are a tasty combination of egg whites, coconut, and vanilla. The cookies are easy to prepare and bake.

What You'll Need

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups coconut (flaked)
  • 1/4 cup flour​ (all-purpose)

How to Make It

  1. Grease and flour baking sheets and preheat oven to 300° F (150° C/Gas 2) .
  2. In a small bowl with hand-held mixer, beat egg whites and salt at high speed until soft peaks form.
  3. Sprinkle sugar in, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating well after each addition until sugar is completely dissolved.
  4. This will take a few minutes after each addition of sugar. (Whites should be in stiff glossy peaks by the time you're done.) Beat in vanilla. With a rubber spatula, fold in coconut and flour.
  1. Drop coconut by teaspoonfuls about an inch apart onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake at 300° for 20 minutes, or until lightly browned. With spatula, carefully remove cookies to rack to cool. Store in tightly covered container for up to 3 days.
