Shamrock Macaroons--NEW!

Recipe: Shamrock Macaroons--NEW! NEW

Remarks:

Servings:
2 dozen cookies (approximately)

Ingredients:

    1 pkg. (14 oz) of Bakers flake coconut. (Their brand is a good one. You can use others if you cannot find Bakers but since this is their recipe I am highlighting them)

    2/3 cup of sugar

    6 Tbl of white flour

    3/4 tsp of salt

    4 egg whites (save the yolks for something else)

    1 tsp of vanilla. (they suggest almond flavoring. I prefer vanilla)

    3 drops (or to your liking of green food coloring). 3 drops is for a half batch. Use more if you are turning the whole bag into green macaroons. It is up to you how green you want them.

Instructions:

    Preheat oven to 325

    Mix coconut, sugar, flour and salt in a large bowl. Stir in egg whites and flavoring until well blended.

    Sprinkle a few drips of food coloring over the dough. Mix. When I do this I do not mix it in completely. I would rather have mine shades of green with some white mixed in but your kids might want to mix it in more thoroughly and have completely green cookies. I will leave the "art of it all" up to you.

    Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 325 for 20 minutes or until the edges have a golden tinge to them. Let the cookies sit just a minute and then promptly remove to dry on a rack so they stay crispy on the bottom. In my experience this makes about 2 dozen cookies.

Serving Suggestions:

Enjoy. Cheers! Zola
