Almond-Coconut Macaroons

Source: Martha Stewart Living, April 2009

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup whole almonds, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of coarse salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a nonstick baking mat or parchment. Whisk together sugar and egg white in a large bowl. Stir in the remaining ingredients.

  2. Form dough into eight 2-tablespoon mounds, and drop each onto sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake macaroons until golden-brown on bottoms and edges, about 15 minutes. Let cool on sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer to wire racks, and let cool.

    I love this recipe. I add a lot more coconut to it though. the first time I made them they were soggy. Quick and easy!

    This was a delicious macaroons and kosher for Pesach. I made them for the holiday. I had to double the recipe because really 8 cookies? I would have had an uprising. I peeled and grated my own coconut, skipped the vanilla extract and added lemon juice instead because we are orthodox and even so these macaroons were great.

    I followed the recipe exactly and mine turned into a watery mess. Very, very disappointing.

    I added Chocolate chips and pecans to one batch and Raisins to another batch. Also melted semi-sweet chocolate and dipped the plain coconut ones into it...They are FABULOUS. Better than spending $15 on store bought ones and Better Tasting. Thank you!!!!!!

    I'm considering a little chocolate drizzle over mine!

    I made these for our first passover at our friends house, and they turned out delicious! I was a little concerned because they had so few ingredients, but am so pleased with the end result...and they're easy!

    A guest brought these to our seder. Incredible! We will never, ever buy the canned ones again. We've made 6 batches since!
