Coconut Macaroons

Submitted by: TABBYKAT75
Coconut Macaroons

Introduction

Simple but richly flavored cinnamon macaroons, with the sweet tropical aroma of coconut and vanilla, make a dainty, nut-filled teatime treat. Simple but richly flavored cinnamon macaroons, with the sweet tropical aroma of coconut and vanilla, make a dainty, nut-filled teatime treat.
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    5 1/4 ounces (3/4 of a 7-ounce package) sweetened shredded coconut
    6 tablespoons chopped nuts (such as almonds, hazelnuts or pecans)
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 large egg whites
    Pinch salt
    2/3 cup sugar, divided

Directions

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with rice paper or parchment paper; set aside.

2. Combine coconut, chopped nuts, cinnamon, and vanilla together in a medium bowl and stir well; set aside.

3. Place egg whites and salt in a small mixer bowl and beat on medium speed to soft peaks. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar over egg whites and continue beating until peaks are glossy.

4. Gently sprinkle remaining sugar over beaten egg whites and carefully fold in using a rubber spatula, then gently fold in coconut mixture.

5. Drop the batter by teaspoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets, about 1 inch apart. Bake until golden, 12 to 15 minutes.

6. If baked on rice paper, allow macaroons to cool completely on cookie sheets, then remove and peel away the excess paper from each one. If using parchment paper, cool 2 to 3 minutes on cookie sheets to firm up, then carefully remove cookies from the paper with a spatula, transfer to a wire rack, and cool completely

If you'd like to make the macaroons in advance for a special occasion, cool completely and store in an airtight container up to 3 days.

    The batter was too runny for them to come out looking nice and fluffy like the picture. I love coconut so I wound up getting cinnamon toasted coconut flakes. Definitely not a cookie. :( - 6/16/08
