what’s spectacular about coconut? make these and find out for yourself. trust us.
2 cups unsweetened coconut
2 tbsps water
4 egg whites
1 cup artificial sweetener
1 tsp vanilla extract
MAKE IT: Preheat oven to 350f. Mix vanilla, egg whites and water in a big bowl. Stir in coconut and sweetner. Let it sit for two minutes while you dance the macarena. Stop dancing, and roll the mix into about 1″ diameter balls — place onto a baking sheet (wax paper optional), about two inches apart. Bake about 15 mins, or until lightly browned on top. Makes about 14 cookies.
HOT TIP: If you’re trying to impress your special friend(s), you could always melt a bar of 95% cocoa chocolate (try Lindt), and dip the tops of your coconut macaroon spectaculars into the melted chocolate mixture. This is an untested theory, but how could it be wrong when it seems so right? You know? Of course you do.
