Coconut Macaroons


The day called for something tropical and I couldn't think of anything better to try than baking up a batch of coconut macaroons to munch on. I have been meaning to try them out since I always buy them from the bakery down the road. This time around I simply stuck with the directions behind the package. The directions were simple and the results were even better. You could also try dipping a few of them in chocolate.
 


Ingredients:

1 (14 ounce) package sweetened coconut flakes
2/3 cup sugar
6 Tbs flour
1/4 tsp salt
4 egg whites, slightly beaten
1 tsp almond extract

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 325 F. Mix the coconut, sugar, flour and salt in a bowl. Stir in the egg whites and almond extract until well blended. Drop about a tablespoon of the mixture on to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 
Bake for 20 minutes or until edges of cookies turn golden brown. Remove the baking sheet and cook completely before serving.

Tip: If you like chocolate, dip a few of the macaroons in thick melted chocolate and enjoy.

bon appetit !!!

  6. Cocnut macaroons, one on my favourites! I had a recipe years ago that was sadly lost, and have missed them ever since. I can't wait to give these a try mmm :) - Cathy Pieroz at Ray White Alexandra Hills
