Directions

  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 was so happy to find a recipe for macaroons that didn't use sweetened condensed milk. It was a little too sweet for my family, but it had a good texture and it was easy to make. I also had to lengthen the baking time to about 30 minutes.

Very nice light cookie to have with tea. They turned out more of a meringue then a macaroon cookie. I would recommend using parchment paper to line the cookie sheet if your pan is not non stick. I had to cook the cookies 10 minutes longer due to high humidity. I will make them again.

Honestly, this was my first macaroon recipe I've ever tried. I liked it! I doubled the recipe and followed exactly. The cookies were light and fluffy, yet chewy at the same time. We are big coconut lovers so this was great!
