Coconut Macaroons are a delicious combination of dried coconut, whole eggs, white sugar, and vanilla extract. Warm from the oven the contrast of a crispy exterior to a moist, soft and chewy interior is amazing. Enjoy them plain, dip the bottoms in melted chocolate, or just place a small chocolate chunk into the center of each cookie. This is such a quick and easy cookie to make that is sure to delight.

Cooking Recipe

Ingredients:
Coconut Macaroons
2 large eggs, room temperature
1/2 cup (100 grams) granulated white sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 cups (720 ml) sweetened dried coconut (shredded or flaked)

Chocolate Coating:
4 ounces (115 grams) semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/2 tsp shortening or butter

Directions:
Coconut Macaroons: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl whisk the eggs until well beaten. Whisk in the sugar, salt, and vanilla extract. Finally, stir in the dried coconut, making sure that all the coconut is thoroughly moistened.

Place small mounds (about 1 tablespoon) (I use a small ice cream scoop) of the batter on the parchment-lined baking sheet, spacing several inches apart. If desired, place a small chunk of chocolate in the center of each cookie. Bake for about 14 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Then dip or spread the bottoms of each macaroon with the melted chocolate. Place the macaroons, chocolate side down, on a parchment lined baking sheet. Refrigerate the cookies for about 15-30 minutes, or until the chocolate hardens. Can be covered and stored for several days at room temperature or in the refrigerator.

Chocolate Coating: Place the chopped chocolate and shortening in a microwaveable bowl. Melt in the microwave (or over a saucepan of simmering water). Let cool to room temperature before using.

Makes about 24 Macaroons.
