Coconut Macaroons

These are very easy coconut cookies. I like to use unsweetened fine coconut for this recipe that you can purchase at most Indian grocery stores. The recipe is adapted from one my mother-in-law gave me.

Coconut Macaroons
2-3/4 cups fine unsweetened grated coconut
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon fine salt
4 large egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 drops coconut extract

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl mix together coconut, sugar, flour, and salt. Add the remaining ingredients. Use a fork to stir it all together until well mixed. Roll into marble-size balls. (You may want to flour your hands because the dough can be sticky.) Place around 35 balls per baking sheet, then bake 17-18 minutes until set and light golden around the edges. Let cookies sit on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then remove to a rack to cool completely. Makes 95 cookies.
