Author Notes: Coconut macaroons are very simple, three-ingredient affairs, and need little in the way of adornment. But the vibrant flavor of raspberries adds a wonderful lift to an otherwise classic dessert (and a pretty, bright pop of color!).Posie (Harwood) Brien

Makes: 16 cookies

Ingredients

  • 3 cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup lightly crushed freeze-dried raspberries

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the egg whites with the sugar and salt. The mixture should become slightly frothy.
  3. Add the shredded coconut. Stir to mix well. Add the raspberries and stir to combine evenly.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and, using a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop, portion out the batter into 1 1/2" balls.
  5. Bake the macaroons for 12 to 15 minutes, until golden brown on the edges. Let cool slightly on the pan.

These worked out nicely. I think unsweetened coconut can be used as well. The freeze dried raspberries are quite sweet. One bag of Trader Joe's freeze dried raspberries did the trick although not quite 1 cup.
