Coconut Macaroons

Coconut Macaroons

  • Servings: 30
  • Course: Dessert

Macaroons were popular in Paris more than a century ago. Still enjoyed today, the homemade coconut-packed cookie goes together fast for special treat or food gift. The whole process goes smoother when you use parchment paper. Place macaroons directly on the parchment paper – there is no need to add extra spray or to grease the sheet of paper – and bake as directed. Treats will bake evenly and release from paper with ease. Plus, because cookies bake right on the paper, clean-up is a breeze. Dip or drizzle the candylike cookie with melted chocolate and blends two great flavors.
