This will be a quick post as I am on vacation visiting my mother this week. But I have a great and delicious recipe for you that will hopefully brighten your Octobers! These macaroons have huge coconut flavor and are light and crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I forgot to take a picture of the 'batter', but it's basically white and glossy with coconut.
Here are the macaroons in the oven...
And here they are all baked up!
-2 egg whites
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-2/3 cup white sugar
-2 cups flaked/shredded coconut
Beat the egg whites, vanilla, and salt to soft peaks. Add the sugar and beat to stiff peaks. Fold in the coconut.
Bake at 325 F for 20 minutes or until golden brown on a greased cookie sheet.
Don't they just look divine?
