Some of the best afternoons include an impromptu cooking project with friends! Well, it was impromptu for me anyway, but a friend wanted to make macaroons and I never turn down an invitation to cook, especially when there’s a Kitchen Aid mixer in the house.
We used a very simple Alton Brown recipe with three ingredients: toasted coconut, egg whites, and sugar. The recipe calls for dropping just a teaspoon of batter on the cookie sheet, but we used much closer to a tablespoon so they took a little longer to bake. Still, they came out nicely browned on the outside and chewy on the inside. The picture below doesn’t capture how good the cookies were or how much fun we had!
