Easy Coconut Macaroons

    15 min

    When I have some egg whites leftover from another recipe, I love to whip up a batch of these. Shape them anyway you like - you can use an egg cup to make them into pyramids or mounds.

    There didn't seem to be enough moisture to stick it all together, so lots of them kind of fell apart as I took them off the baking tray. I'd use less dry ingredients, possibly bake at a lower temperature for a little longer. Pretty tasty, though.  -  25 Aug 2011


    Extremely easy to make! I followed the recipe and mine came out fine, crunchy on the outside, soft and moiste on the inside. I will be making these again!  -  21 Nov 2012
