Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Spray baking sheets with cooking spray.

  • Whisk egg whites and cream of tartar together in a bowl until foamy.

  • Gradually whisk sugar into egg white mixture until blended.

  • Whisk almond extract and flour into egg white mixture until stiff peaks have formed. The egg whites should form a sharp peak that holds its shape when whisk is held straight up.

  • Fold coconut into egg white mixture until incorporated.

  • Drop spoonfuls of batter onto prepared baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until just golden brown, 8 to 9 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for about 2 minutes; transfer to wire rack to completely cool.

Cook's Note:

I usually make this in conjunction with creme brulee because the creme brulee needs 6 egg yolks, therefore the 6 egg whites go to this recipe! :)

This is a light and fluffy macaroon recipe. This cookie would make a nice addition to a holiday cookie tray! I followed the recipe exactly. I baked for 9 minutes and the cookies were a nice golden brown on the bottom but a little sticky on top. Other than that - no complaints! Thanks for sharing! Read More

Proportions of egg whites to coconut was WAY off. I added several more egg whites which eventually did not help. You take a bite and end up with your mouth full of coconut shreds and there is no airy-ness to it at all. Read More
