What you need:
1 bag of shredded coconut
3 large egg whites
1 to 1 1/2 cup sugar
pinch of salt
Stand or Hand Mixer
Rubber or silicone spatula.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and cover at least two cookie sheets with parchment paper. One batch makes about 3 dozen + 9 cookies. It all depends on your sizing.
Step 1: Preparing the Eggs.
2) Once the egg whites start to froth, add about a third of a cup of sugar and turn the mixer to high. Gradually add the last two thirds to the mixer while it's on high.
3) When the egg whites have started to form peaks, stop mixing. It should have a meringue like texture.
Step 2: Adding the Coconut
Step 3: Forming and Baking the Cookies.
6) Place the cookie sheet in the 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. This is plenty of time to bake the macaroons, and they still come out pretty white. If you want a little more color, you can add up to 5 minutes to get the toasted look, but I wouldn't bake them much longer than that.
Step 4: Finishing the Cookies.
Your macaroons are done! They should be very light and fluffy. While they're cooling, you can also try some fun things with them, like adding chocolate kisses or drizzling them with toppings. I'm a personal fan of white chocolate topping, but since these were requests, they're just my originals. :)
