Edible Christmas Gifts #6 Coconut Almond Macaroons

It is getting SO close to Christmas!  A week from tomorrow!!!  I cannot believe it.  I feel so far behind this year.  I have only sent out half my Christmas cards.  Need to do those before Monday!  But today is solely dedicated to holiday baking!  I want to share with you these yummy macaroons.

Coconut Almond Macaroons

  • 3 cups coconut
  • 1 cup almonds, chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine coconut, almonds, coconut milk and almond extract in a bowl.
  3. In mixer or using an electric mixer, beat egg whites, sugar and salt to soft peaks.  (See pictures below)
  4. Gently fold egg white mixer into coconut mixture.  
  5. On a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet, spoon out 1 1/2 inch balls of the mixture.
  6. Bake the cookies until brown around the edges, about 15 minutes.
  7. Let cool COMPLETELY on pan (if you pull them off too quickly, half of the cookie may stay on the pan).


I hope everyone is enjoying the last week before Christmas!
