Author Notes

A recipe so unbelievably simple, yet scrumptious, you may just cry. Seriously, this is perfection for the coconut macaroon purists. —Molly Damon

What You'll Need
  • 3 cups Desiccated, unsweetened, fine coconut
  • 3/4-1 cups Granulated sugar
  • 4 Egg whites
  • 2 teaspoons Pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup Dried tart cherries, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup Good quality dark chocolate, finely chopped
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F and line baking sheet with parchment
  2. Mix together coconut, egg whites and vanilla. Use your's fun to play with food and also the best way to incorporate the whites
  3. Take a taste and adjust sugar level if needed. Don't worry, you used good quality organic eggs. :)
  4. Using a spring loaded cookie scoop (best for uniformity) or dampened hands, form into pretty little mounds.
  5. Bake 15-20 minutes until lightly browned and fragrant. Cool slightly on sheet and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Cookies will stay fresh 3 days covered at room temp

The recipe calls for cherries and chocolate, but does not say to add them at any point in the recipe!
