What do you get when you cross a macaroon with a macaron? A cookie that is truly magnifique! Give the traditional Passover dessert a French accent by sandwiching preserves between two crisp, chewy coconut cookies. Choose tart fruit spreads—we used mango, raspberry, and apricot—to balance the macaroons' sweetness.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • Whisk together egg whites, sugar, and salt until frothy. Stir in coconut until moist. Drop teaspoon-size mounds onto parchment-lined baking sheets; flatten with a fork.

  • Bake until golden, 13 to 15 minutes. Let cool completely.

  • Spread 1/2 teaspoon jam onto bottoms of half the cookies, then sandwich with remaining cookies. Filled cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.

Tasted good but only made 13 cookies. Used teaspoon to measure out. Used 7oz bag of shredded coconut in a 8oz measuring cup & pressed it down & still had lots left in bag. Am I measuring coconut wrong??

I make this every year for Passover. It’s always a hit.

These are delish! After reading the reviews, I cut back on the added sugar and watched the cooking time. Actually cooked the jam down a little bit to make it a bit more firm. Perfection. So yummy, I will be making these again and again. Have tired of chocolate chip cookies for awhile but they were fail safe. Now they will be replaced by these, they're that good.

Amazing simple recipe and had all of the ingredients in hand. Followed the recipe exactly and yielded about 24 small sandwiches (48 individual cookies) I would definitely make these again!

This recipe barely made 12 sandwich cookies. Also they stuck to the parchment paper. So maybe you need to add to the recipe - grease the parchment paper. I followed the recipe exactly, I'm a good baker. Very disappointed. I'm glad on wasn't counting on serving these to a crowd. There wouldn't have been enough cookies. They taste ok though.
