  1. Preheat an oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Beat egg whites until foamy in a large glass or metal mixing bowl. Gradually add the sugar, continuing to beat until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak. Add the salt and lime juice and continue beating until the egg whites form a sharp peak that holds its shape when you lift your beater or whisk. Gently folk the coconut and cocoa powder into the mixture.
  3. Drop mixture by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake until golden brown and firm to the touch, about 20 minutes. Cool on the pans on wire racks. Store in an airtight container.

I added more lime and some lime zest and skipped out on the cocoa powder (my husbands request.) We really liked the cookies although it took me 15 minutes to get the meringue right. Next time I'...

Mine came out nothing like the picture...needed more coconut? They were really sweet and flat. Looked more like cocoa cookies than macaroons. The taste was good, I just wish they looked like t...


very good but needs more lime and is more like a meringue cookie as opposed to a macaroon.

Just awesome. It took me a couple tries to get it right--looking up a tutorial on how to make macaroons properly really helped. I also found that I had to shop the bulk aisle in my Whole Foods t...

Mine didn't turn out very well! I followed the instructions and the meringue turned out well, but I think they needed twice the amount of coconut to really be macaroons. They weren't bad tasting...
