My Favorite Cookie

I love cookies.

Not nearly much as cake, of course, but cookies are often found on our cake stand.

My favorite cookie is a macaroon. The simplicity is refreshing and the toasted coconut really shines.

3 egg whites

1/2 cup sugar

pinch of salt

14oz. sweetened flaked coconut.

Beat eggs, sugar & salt with whisk until frothy. Fold in coconut. Drop spoonfuls into mounds on parchment lined baking sheets. Bake in 350 oven for about 25 minutes. Watch so that they do not burn. A toasty brown crust & chewy interior is the desired result.

C, my almost 2 year old gourmand, thought these were wonderful. I caught him sneaking the stepstool over to the island to steal one more.
