Delicious Coconut Macaroons

Learn how to make Coconut Macaroons. Although many think of macaroons as a combination of ground almonds (or paste) and egg whites (recipe here), in North America we like our macaroons to contain sweetened coconut. Bite into one of these sweet tasting gems, still warm from the oven, and you will enjoy the contrast of a crispy exterior to a soft and chewy, coconut flavored interior.

Cooking Recipe

Coconut Macaroons:
4 large (120 grams) egg whites, at room temperature
1 cup (200 grams) granulated white sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup (60 grams) cake flour, sifted
3 cups (300 grams) dried sweetened coconut, shredded or flaked

Coconut Macaroons: In a heatproof bowl, placed over a saucepan of simmering water, whisk together the egg whites, sugar, and salt. When this mixture is warm to the touch, and nice and creamy, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract, flour, and coconut. Cover and refrigerate for about two hours, or until firm.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Place small mounds (heaping tablespoons) of the batter on the parchment-lined baking sheet, spacing several inches apart. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes and then place on a wire rack to cool.

Makes about 2 dozen Macaroons.
