"These scrumptious coconut macaroons are very simple to make and only use four ingredients. They are golden and just a little crispy on the outside, soft and chewy inside. Almond extract really brings out the flavor of the coconut. So divine and so easy! I often double this recipe around holiday time because I can't seem to make them fast enough for my coconut lovers!"

This recipe was a much simpler version of what I typically use when I make coconut macaroons. It came together easily and looked beautifully golden brown when baked. I think the texture was definitely missing something though. I think the addition of flour and egg whites that most macaroon recipes have is needed. Make sure you butter your pan really well or use parchment paper. I lightly buttered the pan and they still stuck. I

I made these this weekend and they turned out fantastic! I didn't have any almond extract, so I increased the vanilla extract. This was so simple! I do recommend putting the mixture in the fridge for about an hour before rolling out onto the baking sheet lined with folio and greased for easier clean up. I also dipped them into semi-sweet chocolate and they were fantastic!
