  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whip egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff enough to make a mark through with a knife. Gradually sprinkle in the sugar, cinnamon and almond extract while continuing to mix on low speed. Fold in toasted coconut by hand. Spoon or scoop onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies are dry and peel of the paper easily. Cool on wire racks and store in an airtight container at room temperature.


  • To toast coconut
  • Spread flaked coconut out on a cookie sheet and bake for 5 to 7 minutes in a 350 degrees F oven.

I was first scared to be the first one tried this recipe, but let me tell you it is so good, I did not toast the coconut as the recipe says, and did not add the cinnamon, so good,thanks

I followed the directions exactly, and these cookies were terribly sticky. Even after cooling, they were just a sticky mess.

Made these since I had lots of leftover coconut from Coconut Cream Pie. I almost forgot about the toasted ones and was wondering why it wasn't a bit more.. thick. But that was my own fault. I'm ...

I made these for my husband and other coconut lovers . This recipe is very easy to follow. The comments I have received from everyone is that it's a very light and tasty macaroon. I strongly ...
