Preheat the oven to 150 degrees C (Gas 2). Grease two baking trays.
Use an electric beater to whisk the egg whites until stiff but moist. Sift in the icing sugar and gently fold into the egg whites. Gently fold in the almonds, vanilla extract and dessicated coconut until the mixture is combined, forming a sticky dough.
Spoon walnut-sized pieces of the mixture onto the baking trays.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the macaroons are crisp and golden on the outside.
These turned out great. Absolutely delicious, we cant get enough of them and find ourselves going back to the tin for more. I drizzled chocolate on half of them and left the rest plain. Quick and easy to make. A definite keeper. - 01 Mar 2010
