Only 2 more sleeps until Christmas!
I decided I wasn't going to let this flu bug get the best of me.
I got up, and baked. Because, baking is my zen place. Makes me calm and serene.
I pinned this recipe ages ago, and it looked VERY easy.
I've always loved coconut macaroons, but I've never made them before.
I don't know why.
They were beyond easy and beyond delicious.
I got the recipe from Taste of Home:
- 1-1/3 cups flaked coconut
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 325° for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
I doubled the recipe and got 2 dozen.
I was going to dip them in chocolate and almonds, but once Drew tasted one he wouldn't let me change them. haha
They are chewy, sweet and incredibly delicious.
I still can't get over how easy they were to make.
Tis the season to indulge.
Happy Christmas babies!
