I think everybody loves macaroons. They are so delicious. Here is an
old-school recipe for this simple cookie.


Coconut Macaroons (Gluten Free)
Yield: 2 1/2 dozen

2 egg whites
pinch of salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (can use up to 5 teaspoons)

1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Let eggs come to room temperature.
Beat egg whites and salt in a bowl til foamy.

Fold in coconut and pecans.

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Drop dough by teaspoonfuls 2-inches apart onto cookie sheet.
Bale at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.

Gently move to wire racks to cool.
