Coconut Macaroons Recipe

coconut macaroons
I was looking for something to make with some left over the shredded coconut and I had to lie around and decided to go with Coconut Macaroons. If you don’t know what macarons are, they are kind of like cookies. Macaroons with coconut are a very popular way to make them in the United States but how macaroons are made usually varies by country. This recipe has very few ingredients and chances are you probably have most if not all of them already in your kitchen. The vanilla extract could be easily replaced with almond extract if you prefer that flavor. This will only make a pretty small batch so if you want more I might suggest doubling the recipe. If you’re looking for a quick, easy and delicious recipe for coconut macaroons give this one a try.

I've made these about half a dozen times now-love them! I've used both dried and fresh coconut and they both turn out great. Thank you for such a great recipe!

April - Good question. I have not used fresh coconut alot in cooking and am not positive but I don't see why not. Give it a try and let me know how it turns out!

Hey! These look great. Just wondering do you think fresh coconut would work or do I need dried? I've got two coconuts leftover and would love to make macaroons.
