Coconut Macaroons

coconut macaroons
if you love sweet coconut, this one's for you. these delectable little treats kept showing up at my dept.'s christmas party every year, but no one seemed to know who made them so i finally tracked down their creator, and begged and begged for months (ok, it was only 5 minutes but i'm not used to begging) to get the recipe. she finally obliged, so here it is...

joanne's coconut macaroons: makes 12 large (about golf ball size)

2 egg whites
1/3 cup sugar
2 tbsps. all purpose flour
1/4 tsp almond or vanilla extract
2 cups sweetened coconut
dash of salt
1/2 cup nestle toll house chips (both milk and white chocolate are good)

heat oven to 325 degrees.
grease and lightly flour a cookie sheet.
in a medium bowl, beat the egg whites until frothy. add sugar, flour, salt, and extract. blend well. stir in coconut. drop dough by tablespoon onto the cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
bake at 325 for 12 to 17 minutes, or until set and lightly golden brown. remove immediately from cookie sheet to a cooling rack.

The past is gone it's all been said.
So here's to what the future brings,
I know tomorrow you'll find better things
