A Sweet Little Something

Coconut macaroons anyone? They’re sweet little confections that hit the sweet-tooth spot! And, are quite easy to make…if you l-o-v-e coconut, you can probably find a recipe on the back of the bag of coconut!  For a slight twist, add fresh lemon or orange zest, with a bit of lemon thyme! YUM! They package up nicely too…you can dip/decorate the tops (after they’re baked) in melted chocolate chips, or add one little heart-shaped candy to the top!

RECIPE:

1 package coconut (14 oz.)

2/3 cup granulated sugar

6 tablespoons flour

1/4 tsp salt

4 egg whites

1 tsp almond extract (or lemon extract)

How-to:

Mix coconut, flour, salt in large bowl; stir in egg whites and extract until well blended. Drop by teaspoons (I used a melon baller) onto greased and floured cookie sheet ~~ I used parchment paper. Bake at 325 degrees F for 20 minutes until edge of cookie is golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet immediately and cool on a wire rack. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

Happy baking!

  1. You are so creative, I love macaroons. I’ve been off-line for quite a long time. My 93 year old mom went to be with the Lord, Feb. 4th. You’re blog makes me smile. Thanks Jenny
