It’s baking season!! Are you ready for some easy and yummy macaroons? Get your family & friends together and bake these yummy critters. 🙂
1/4 cup of sugar
2 cups of shredded coconut (unsweetened)
2 egg whites slightly beaten
A pinch of salt
2 tsp of vanilla flavoring
* chocolate for dipping ( optional)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees or 160 Celsius. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine sugar, coconut, egg whites, vanilla, and salt.
Using your hands mix the ingredients well.
Dampen your hands with cold water and prepare to mold these macaroons. Use about 1 1/2 tablespoons to form a ball. Place each macaroon on a prepared baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake until golden brown, 17 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack. If you want to do chocolate dipped macaroons, melt a block of baking chocolate and then dip the macaroons in. I like to use a pastry brush, and brush half the macaroons with chocolate. 🙂
* These can be stored in a airtight container for up to 3 days.
