Recently, I was at my favorite bakery in town buying a loaf of fresh bread when I smelled this sweet cookie. I usually would not buy coconut macaroons - I just never think about them. These cookies smelled so good that I had to buy one. Immediately after we devoured the cookie, Chad said I need to learn to make them. So, I did. I found an EASY recipe here and they were so good!
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
1/3 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 325.
In a small bowl, combine the coconut, sugar, flour and salt. Stir in the egg whites and vanilla; mix well.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool on a wire rack.
