One good macaroon recipe is the First Place Coconut Macaroons from Taste of Home. They call for simple ingredients such as egg whites, flour, sugar and coconut, and they take only 20 minutes to bake.
This macaroon recipe calls for 1 1/3 cups of flaked coconut, 1/3 cup of sugar, 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour, two egg whites, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. The coconut, sugar, flour and salt are put into a large mixing bowl and combined. Once these are blended, the egg whites and vanilla are added and stirred in. This batter is then dropped in rounded teaspoonfuls onto a non-stick or lightly greased baking sheet.
After this process, the cookies are baked at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 18 to 20 minutes, or until they become golden brown on top. Once they are done baking, the cookies should be allowed to cool on a wire rack for several minutes before serving.
This particular macaroon recipe has several positive reviews on the Taste of Home website. Most reviewers mentioned how easy the recipe is to follow, and several commented on the excellent taste and texture of the finished cookies. One reviewer suggested the use of rice flour in place of all-purpose flour for a gluten-free version of the recipe.
