Coconut macaroons recipe

    Ingredients:

    • 3 cups shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened, depending on your preference)
    • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 2 large egg whites, at room temperature
    • 1/2 cup powdered sugar (optional, for dusting)

    Instructions:

    Preheat the Oven:

    Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

    Prepare the Coconut Mixture:

    In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded coconut, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix until well combined.

    Whip the Egg Whites:

    In a separate clean, dry bowl, use an electric mixer to whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form. This will take a few minutes.

    Fold in the Egg Whites:

    Gently fold the whipped egg whites into the coconut mixture until evenly combined. Be careful not to deflate the egg whites too much; you want to keep the mixture light and fluffy.

    Shape the Macaroons:

    Using a spoon or a cookie scoop, drop rounded tablespoons of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.

    Bake:

    Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes or until the edges of the macaroons are golden brown. Keep an eye on them to prevent over-browning.

    Cool:

    Allow the macaroons to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Optional: Dust with Powdered Sugar:

    If desired, dust the cooled macaroons with powdered sugar for a decorative touch.

    Enjoy:

    Once completely cooled, your coconut macaroons are ready to be enjoyed! They make a delightful treat for any occasion.

    Note:

    Store the coconut macaroons in an airtight container at room temperature. They can also be frozen for longer storage.

    These coconut macaroons are sweet, chewy, and have a wonderful coconut flavor. Enjoy baking and savoring these delightful treats!
