Mom’s Coconut Macaroons

My daughter Maya learned this recipe from my Mom and it’s really her recipe, too. Maya used to bake a lot with my Mom and has become a pretty amazing baker.

1/2 cup egg whites
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups moist, shredded coconut

Beat whites until very stiff, gradually beating in the sugar, salt and vanilla. Blend in coconut gently, and drop the batter by tablespoons onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper, or a clean paper grocery bag cut to fit.

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Yum!
