Soft Coconut Macaroons

Yield Makes 2 1/2 to 3 dozen
Using clear vanilla extract will keep the macaroons pearly white, but if you don't have it, regular vanilla will work fine.


  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 2/3 cups sweetened flaked coconut
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

How to Make It

  1. Stir together all ingredients in a large bowl, blending well. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased baking sheets.

  2. Bake at 325° for 18 to 20 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.
