Top-ranked recipe named "Coconut Macaroons"
When the macaroons have cooled I sometimes coat the bottom with chocolate
"These were very light and flaky. I was looking for a chewy macaroon - these weren't it. If you like light as air and sweet, you'd like these."
Beat egg whites with a dash of salt and the vanilla till soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, beating till stiff. Fold in coconut.
Drop by rounded teaspoons onto greased cookie sheet. Bake in slow oven (325 degrees F) about 20 mins.

HoneyBronzeChef 1 month agoI used light brown sugar and a half a capful of Myers rum, dash of nutmeg and ginger. Light and chewy yet delicate. I would use less sugar and add lemon or lime zest the next time
jdriemeyer 2 months agoSomewhere between a macaroon and a meringue. Delicious and very easy.
