But I Really Wanted Make Macarons

I made Coconut Macaroons this weekend. Actually, my husband started the recipe, I just shaped them out on the baking sheet and placed them in the oven. So, technically I "made" them. :)

I've made these things growing up in the Philippines so many times, though, I can make them with my eyes closed. They're one of my family's favorite.

But macarons, those are totally different. They are another league on their own. Macarons I've never made before. But been wanting to. For a long time now.

I've read all the other food blogs and actually am a little intimated by them. So hopefully, by me writing this, it will give the motivation to just make it already.Coconut Macaroons
makes about 3 dozen

1 package (14 oz. or 5 1/3 cups) sweetened coconut flakes
2/3 cup sugar
6 Tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
4 egg whites
1 tsp. almond extract

Mix coconut, sugar, flour, and salt in large bowl.

Stir in egg whites and almond extract.

Drop by teaspoonfuls (I like them small, you may use a tablespoon) onto greased baking sheets.

Bake at preheated 325F degrees for 15 minutes or until edges of cookies are golden brown. Remove from baking sheet and let cool on wire racks.

We also made this a lot back in the Philippines. Always a favorite.

Thanks! My husband thinks it's a little corny, though. :)
