Coconut Macaroons 


I can’t believe that I am a few articles away from writing two hundred blog posts. It’s a huge accomplishment for me. A few weeks ago, I mentioned my desire to commemorate my accomplishment by baking something special which turned out to be coconut macaroons.

Since it was my first time to bake these cookies I admit I was little nervous. But thankfully my Grandma was in town this week. She helped me a little bit, but I did most of the work!

These cookies are a sweet tasty little treat made with coconut flakes – really simple recipe, but the results are rich, moist, and delicious!

Coconut Macaroons

Ingredients

14 oz sweetened coconut flakes
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 egg whites, room temperature
1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a large baking sheet pan with parchment paper. Set aside

In a large mixing bowl, combine the coconut, condensed milk, and vanilla. Whip the egg whites and salt on high speed in the bowl of an electric/hand mixer; beat until they make medium-firm peaks. Carefully fold the egg whites into the coconut mixture. Drop the batter onto the previously prepared baking sheet pan(s) lined with the parchment paper using an ice cream scoop. Bake for twenty-five to thirty minutes, or until golden brown. Allow the cookies to cool before serving.
