Coconut Macaroons

Macaroons were my dad's favorite.  I remember as a kid my mom would buy these and I would sneak and eat them.  Many of the recipes I've seen call for too much sugar, so I put together this recipe because I wanted a macaroon that was not extremely sweet.  I decided to dip a few in chocolate Ganache.  Chocolate makes everything good!


6 cups sweetened coconut flakes
4 egg whites
1/3 cup of sugar
2 tbsp all purpose flour
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
1/2 tsp of almond extract

Preheat oven at 325 Degree F

Prepare cookie sheet with parchment paper
In your mixer bowl add the coconut flakes and egg whites.  Mix well, add all of the other ingredients. Using a small ice cream scooper drop rounds of the coconut mixture into the prepared cookie sheet.
Bake for 20-30 minutes depending on the size of the macaroons until golden brown.

I hope you enjoy these as much as my hubby and I did.
