Coconut Macaroons

Here's another of our favorite Christmas cookies: Coconut Macaroons.

These are easy cookies to make, have just a few ingredients, but pack a big punch of flavor.

Adding a little almond extract gives the cookie just enough extra flavor, but not enough to over shadow the coconut.  
If almond is the flavor you wish to dominate add a little more extract.

These store well in a sealed air tight container.
These can be made Gluten Free, just use GF flour.

Stir in egg whites and almond extract until well blended. 

Mix together coconut, sugar, flour and salt

Drop a teaspoonful of cookie dough onto lightly greased or parchment paper covered baking sheets.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until edges of cookies are golden brown. 
Remove from oven immediately and allow to cool completely.
