My Favorite Coconut Macaroons

This is one of those quick recipes I turn to when there are leftover egg whites in the house.  These macaroons are so ridiculously easy and delicious, it would be a crime to dump those whites down the drain.  Want to kick them up a notch?  Dip the bottoms in melted bitter-sweet chocolate and allow to cool on a parchment-lined baking sheet.


  • 1 1/3 c. flaked coconut
  • 1/3 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 TBS all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

In a small bowl, combine the coconut, sugar, flour, and salt.  Stir in egg whites and vanilla, mix well.  Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheets.

Bake at 325° for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool on a wire rack.
