Chewy Coconut Macaroons – Everyday Food with Sarah Carey

If I’m short on time and ingredients, but still want to bake, coconut macaroons are always a good bet! They’re basically the exact opposite of the French macarons [LINK:] we made last week because they’re impossible to mess up!

Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
The ingredient list is simple: egg whites, granulated sugar, shredded coconut, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. I’ll wait while you gather those items from your cabinet… Okay, ready? Now watch the video to see how I mix and bake these guys — you’ll have sweet, chewy, coconutty treats before you know it.

Makes about 18


2 large egg whites
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together egg whites and sugar until foamy. Add coconut, vanilla, and salt. Mix well to combine.

Form coconut mixture into 1 1/2 tablespoonful mounds; place on parchment-lined baking sheet about 1 inch apart.

Bake until golden brown, 16 to 17 minutes, rotating halfway through. Let cool on a wire rack.
