1/2 cup (4 ounces) AllWhites® egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons almond extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups sweetened flaked coconut
(optional) For Cherry Almond Macaroons stir in ½ cup chopped dried cherries into the coconut mixture before refrigerating.
Whisk together AllWhites, sugar, almond extract and salt until sugar is dissolved. Stir in flour and coconut. Refrigerate mixture 15 minutes.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes (I had to bake mine 15-20 minutes) or until bottom of cookies are light golden brown. Cool on baking sheet 5 minutes; remove to cooling rack.
