Coconut Macaroons

I know, not very Christmas-ee, but my mother in law likes coconut, so I made these for her as a gift. They are also super easy to make, here's the recipe:


- 1 (14 ounce) package flake Coconut
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 6 tablespoons flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 egg whites
- 1 teaspoon almond extract

(As you can see, it's pretty easy to half the recipe, which is what I did)


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and flour baking sheets; set aside. Mix coconut, sugar, flour and salt in large bowl. Stir in egg whites and almond extract until well blended. Drop coconut mixture into 36 mounds, 2 inches apart, on prepared baking sheets, using about 1 tablespoonful of the coconut mixture for each mound. Bake 20 min. or until edges are golden brown. Immediately remove from baking sheets to wire racks. Cool completely.

You can also melt some semi- sweet baking chocolate and dip or drizzle the macaroons in once they have cooled.
