Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroons

February 17, 2007 snickerdoodle7

These are my fathers favorite cookies. They are light and coco-nutty with one of the best recipe enhancers ever: chocolate. I’m not going to write a lot about them. Just go make them and you’ll see. I promise

4 large egg whites

1 cup granulated sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup cake flour

2 1/2 cups sweetened coconut

Desired amount of chocolate chips

In a bowl over a pot of simmering water whisk together the egg whites, sugar, and salt until the mixture is warm to the touch. Remove from the heat and stir in the flour, vanilla, and coconut. Refrigerate for 45 minutes and then stir in as many chocolate chips as you would like (the way I see it is the more the better). Refrigerate another 15 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Scoop the dough by the tablespoon to form small mounds on the cookie sheets. Bake until slightly browned at the edges, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheets for five minutes and then place on a cooling rack to cool completely.

Makes about 30 macaroons.

Based on this recipe from Joy of Baking.
