Coconut Macaroons: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 12
Chewy and light, these little puffs will keep for weeks if refrigerated in an airtight tin.


  • oil or melted butter for the baking sheet
  • 3 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 large or extra-large eggs
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.
  • Combine the coconut, sugar, and salt in a medium-size bowl, and mix until well combined.
  • Place the eggs and vanilla in another medium-size bowl, and beat at high speed with an electric mixer or a whisk for about 3 minutes, or until the eggs become a pale, creamy foam.
  • Add the eggs to the coconut mixture, and combine thoroughly.
  • Drop by rounded teaspoons onto the prepared baking sheet and bake on the center rack of the oven for 15 minutes, or until golden on the tops and edges.
  • Carefully remove the macaroons from the baking sheet and transfer to a wire rack. Cool completely before serving.
