Passover Macaroons

Passover Macaroons

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs (whites only)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups shredded coconut
  • Optional: 2 squares (2 ounces) unsweetened or semi-sweet Kosher chocolate

Directions

  1. Steps to Make It

  2. Preheat the oven to 325 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  3. Beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until they are light and fluffy.

  4. Gradually beat in the sugar and vanilla. Beat until the egg whites form very stiff peaks. Stir in the coconut by hand.

  5. Drop the coconut mixture by rounded teaspoons onto the lined baking sheets, placing them at least 2 inches apart.

  6. Bake the macaroons about 20 minutes, until they are slightly golden and some of the coconut is crispy.

  7. Allow them to cool completely and then carefully remove them from the parchment paper. Store for up to 1 week in an air-tight container at room temperature, or for longer storage, wrap individually in plastic wrap and freeze.
