coconut macaroons


scrumptious macaroons
as often, we are indebted to martha stewart's cookies for the recipe

you will need:
3/4 cup sugar, or a bit less if you use sweetened coconut

2 1/2 cups shredded coconut, unsweetened if you like, but, i use sweetened
2 large egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

what to do:
preheat oven to 325 farenheit
line a baking sheet with parchment paper
in a large bowl, combine sugar, coconut, egg whites, and vanilla
using your hands, mix well, completely combining ingredients
dampen hands with cold water
use 1 1/2 tablespoons of mix to form haystacks, and place on prepared baking sheet about 1 inch apart
bake until golden brown, about 16 or 17 minutes, rotating halfway through
let cool on a wire rack.
yum!  told you it was easy!

CHOCOLATE ALERT *you can also add 1/2 cup of semi-sweet choc chips, and make a few more.  cooking time is 15 to 20 minutes for this variation*
