Coconut Macaroons – Simple & Impressive

  
Well, it’s official, Christmas baking has started! Here’s hoping some actually makes it into the freezer!!

Okay so this is a quick and simple recipe that looks impressive. 

Ingredients:

5 cups Unsweetened Coconut

2/3 cup White Sugar

6 Tablespoon White Flour

1/4 teaspoon Salt

4 Egg Whites

1 teaspoon Vanilla (or Almond) Extract

Method:

Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Mix eggs white, sugar, salt, and vanilla. Add flour and mix until smooth. Add coconut and stir until coconut in fully incorporated. 
Drop by 1 Tablespoon (I use a cookie scoop) onto a lined cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  

Chocolate:

Now you can leave it at that, but I like them dipped with chocolate. So, if you want to do this step, you will need 3/4 cup of chocolate chips. Melt 1/2 cup in microwave on defrost stirring every 30 seconds until totally melted. Then add 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Stir until totally melted do not heat again (this will temper it). Dip your macaroons in and shake off extra chocolate. Drizzle on top using a fork dipped in chocolate. 
  

Enjoy!
