Recently I tried a coconut macroon cookie at a local bakery. It was good but a bit too sweet. Which immediately made me think that I needed to make a recipe of my own that has the sweetness level I desire. This was seriously the easiest cookie I’ve ever made!!! So let’s dive right into the recipe.
2 1/2 cups unsweetened, medium grated or shredded coconut
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Melt butter in a medium saucepan, remove from heat and let cool for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the coconut until well-coated with butter.
In a large bowl beat eggs. Add sugar and continue to beat until light and fluffy. Stir in vanilla extract.
Stir the coconut into the eggs until combined. Using a 1″ scoop drop batter onto the parchment paper lined baking sheet, giving almost an inch between cookie. Slightly flatten using the back of a spoon. Stir the batter occasionally as you work to reincorporate the melted butter.
Bake until golden, 8 to 10 minutes depending on the size of the cookie.
Makes about 18 cookies. If you desire dip in melted dark or semi sweet chocolate for a little extra indulgence.
Enjoy & Until Next Time,
