Macaroon Day

So delicious with a cup of tea.  

Buzz:  To make extra special, dip bottoms in melted chocolate or drizzle chocolate over them.  

          Classic Coconut: 

             Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

              Combine the coconut, condensed milk, and                        vanilla in a large bowl. Whip the egg whites and salt on high speed in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment until they make medium-firm peaks.               Carefully fold the egg whites into the coconut mixture.

Drop the batter onto sheet pans lined with parchment paper using either a 1 3/4-inch diameter ice cream scoop, or two teaspoons. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown. Cool and serve.
