Coconut Macaroons

There's almost nothing quite so wonderful as the smell of warm vanilla, sweet cream butter and fresh coconut baking together into a golden cookie.  Vanilla coconut macaroons are about the simplest cookie to make and are the perfect blend of sweet, nutty, chewy and crisp.  

You can just pop them in your mouth, practically one after the other, and know that all is right with the world.
Brew up an afternoon pot of coffee or tea and enjoy your Saturday lovelies!  PS~ This particular recipe belongs to Chef Hammer at the Culinary School and is the BEST.  Give it a whirl.

6 oz sugar
6 oz macaroon coconut
1 oz corn syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp pastry flour
1 pinch of salt
3 egg whites

Combine all ingredients in a glass bowl then warm over a pot of simmering water or let sit for 1 hour.  Once mixture has set for an hour or cooled, scoop small dollops onto parchment and bake on a cookie sheet at 375 degrees for about 13 minutes.

Gobble up while sipping a cup of Earl Grey.
