Coconut Macaroons

Calling all coconut lovers! Coconut macaroons are gluten-free, so if you or loved ones have a gluten intolerance, this is the cookie for them. They are simple to make and not too sweet. They are chewy and moist on the inside with a crisp golden shell on the outside. We suggest dipping the cookies into dark chocolate, but if you’re not a chocolate fan, you can skip this step. During the holidays, we are surrounded by chocolate chip or peanut butter cookies, so for something a bit lighter try this recipe! One of these morsels will be the perfect late night or afternoon snack.

Ingredients

14 oz sweetened flaked coconut
¾ c sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 large egg whites
¼ tsp salt
4 ounces dark chocolate (optional)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 325 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together coconut, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla. Set aside.

3. Using a stand or handheld electric mixer, beat the egg whites and salt until they can hold stiff peaks.

4. Fold the egg whites into the coconut mixture.

5. Using a 1-inch cookie scoop or two spoons, form small mounds on prepared baking sheets. Space 1 inch apart.

6. Bake for 12 minutes, rotate sheets, bake another 14 minutes. Cookies are done when they have a golden color surrounding the entire cookie. Allow to cool completely.

7. Melt chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl for thirty seconds, stir and repeat this process until chocolate is fully melted. Dip the bottoms of the cooled cookie into the chocolate. Place onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Allow chocolate to harden.

Enjoy!
