Coconut Macaroon Cookies Recipe

Coconut Macaroon Cookies

Ingredients:
3/4 cup (5 large) egg whites
2/3 cup granulated sugar
10 oz sweetened coconut flakes (Baker’s)
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt

Directions:
In a heavy saucepan combine egg whites, sugar and coconut flakes and cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until all the ingredients combine together, about 12-15 minutes. The mixture should be sticky and moist, not dry. Remove from heat and stir in the almond and vanilla extracts. Set aside on a dish and let it cool in the refrigerator about 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 300°. Using a tablespoon, scoop tightly packed tablespoonfuls onto a baking sheet covered with a silpat or parchment paper.
Bake 27-30 minutes or until golden.
Makes 38 cookies.
