Baking My Way: Pillsbury Coconut Macaroons

This was my first go at macaroons of any kind and I think they turned out great! They're not too sweet but very coconuty which I love! They also have a Festive Coconut Macaroon recipe that is the same but with candied cherries which sounds good.

2 egg whites
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Dash salt
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups coconut

Heat oven to 325°F. Grease and lightly flour cookie sheets. In large bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Beat in sugar, flour, salt and almond extract until well blended.

Stir in coconut and candied cherries. Drop dough by scant tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto cookie sheets.

Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until set and lightly browned. Immediately remove from cookie sheets.


  1. Easy and yummy--what could be better!

  2. Love the macaroons with a twist! Thanks for shairng and have a great week ahead!

  3. Amanda These look so good.. They would be pretty at Xmas with red and green cherries.

  4. One of my many favs. It looks really tasty. Festive is perfect for holidays, all red for St. Valentine's Day, and all green for St. Patrick's Day too.


Thanks for your comments and feedback! I enjoy reading each one :)
