When the macaroons have cooled I sometimes coat the bottom with chocolate
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 12m 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 1y agoSomewhere between a macaroon and a meringue. Delicious and very easy.
kitchengoddess72 1y agoThese have been a Christmas favorite for almost 30 years! We call them Angel kiss cloud cookies because they are not like a traditional macaroon, they are even better!!!!??

mmarek 5y agoSolution to the chewiness comment: bake at 320 for 18 minutes
1MoreCreative 6y agoThese 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.
bklloyd 7y agoAbsolutely wonderful! Party favorite!
