“These cookies can be piped out using a cookie press or pastry bag, shaped into mounds or little finger logs. Nice Christmas cookies.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  3. Stir in sugar and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes, until edges of mixture begin to pull away from pan. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Stir in coconut.
  4. Drop dough by spoonfuls 1 1/2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown and firm to the touch. Cool on the pans on wire racks.

Easy recipe, but I would suggest almond extract instead of (or in addition to) the vanilla. I used both because in my mind coconut macaroons should taste almond-y. Also, these were more like merangues with coconut in them. For a chewier, more macaroon-like cookie, use more coconut! With those changes, I'd rate these a 4-star cookie.

If served in France, you would be in the Bastille. It doesn't even resemble a macaroon!
