Welcome to Day 5 of Sally’s Cookie Palooza! Confession: I took yesterday off from posting to autograph/address all 100 book plates for the winners of this giveaway. Great news! More Sally’s Baking Addiction cookbook giveaways ahead.

But first… coconut macaroons!

I have a HUGE spot in my heart (stomach?) for coconut macaroons.

My mom used to make them on a Christmas cookie platter every year along with her gingersnap cookies, these irresistible treats, and pecan tassies. Sometimes we’d throw some Godiva chocolates on the platter too. (Totally divine.)

Coconut macaroons are actually quite simple to make at home. When done right, they can taste like the irresistible coconut center of an Almond Joy or Mounds bar. When done wrong, they’re dry, crispy, and falling apart. My coconut macaroons are none of the sort! They’re sweet, moist, and chewy on the inside with a delightfully crisp exterior.

And guess what? I have four different coconut macaroon varieties to share with you today. That’s right, four recipes in one.

Almond Joy Macaroons - chocolate, coconut, and almonds. Easy recipe at sallysbakingaddiction.com

All four varieties I’m sharing with you today start the same: you will need 4 and 3/4 cups of sweetened shredded coconut, which is a little less than a standard 14 oz package. Make sure you measure your coconut accurately. Any more than 4 and 3/4 cups and you’ll end up with dry, flimsy macaroons that will fall apart in your hands.

The other ingredients you’ll need are: egg whites, vanilla extract, and sugar.

A few helpful tips:

  • Beat your egg whites, sugar, and vanilla with a mixer before adding the coconut. I’ve found that beating them with a mixer, as opposed to whisking by hand, makes a moister macaroon. This is because you’re creating fluffy volume by beating, which can only be a good thing when mixing with coconut.
  • Make sure there is no remnants of egg yolk whatsoever. Just egg whites.
  • Do not overbake. Only a precise 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Overbaking will dry out your coconut macaroons.

As you’re mixing the coconut into the wet ingredients by hand, make sure the mixture seems wet. If it seems dry, add 1 more egg white. This is what my mixture looked like:

I like to use my cookie scoop (in size large) for portioning the macaroons onto the baking sheet. If you don’t have a large cookie scoop, use just under 3 Tablespoons of the mixture per cookie. (about 2.5 Tablespoons to be exact)

Now… the fun part. There are so many ways you can dress up this coconut macaroon recipe. :)

Version #1… add 1/2 cup of sprinkles to the coconut mixture before baking to create Funfetti Coconut Macaroons!

Version #2… you could also press 1 almond on top of each coconut mound before going into the oven. Then, once baked, drizzle with some chocolate to create…

Almond Joy Coconut Macaroons. I am a huge sucker for Almond Joy candy bars and it was about time I recreate my own little version at home!

Version #3… you can also leave the coconut macaroons plain and simple, which is what purists may prefer.

They’re pretty darn good au naturale, if I do say so myself…

And finally… version #4. Add some dried cranberries to the mixture, bake as directed, then drizzle with melted white chocolate.

So which version will be your favorite?

Though my love for sprinkles runs deep, I honestly think my favorite are the white chocolate cranberry coconut macaroons. But that’s just today. Tomorrow, I’ll probably want the last almond joy variety. And then the next day, I’ll need a sprinkle of color. It’s true… I have dessert A.D.D.

If you’re looking for a moist and chewy coconut macaroon with a toasty exterior, you’ve come to the right place. When you’re feeling fancy, dress the simple recipe up with any of my suggested varieties in the recipe notes.

Coconut Macaroons

Homemade coconut macaroons that are sweet, moist, and chewy on the inside with a delightfully crisp exterior. Enjoy my recipe in 4 different varieties (see notes).

Yield: 14-16 cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract (optional)
  • 4 and 3/4 cups sweetened shredded coconut (a little less than one 14-ounce package)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325F degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Use an oven thermometer to test your oven temperature. The 325F degree point must be precise.

In a large bowl using a handheld or stand mixer with paddle attachment, beat the egg whites, sugar, and vanilla together on medium-high speed until foamy and the sugar is mostly dissolved - at least 2 minutes. Fold in the coconut, making sure the coconut is evenly moistened.

Using a large cookie scoop, scoop 2-3 Tablespoons of the batter and drop onto prepared baking sheet - at least 2 inches apart. Make sure the mounds are compact and neat, as pictured above.

Bake until lightly golden brown, about 20 minutes. Make sure to rotate the pan to ensure even baking. Otherwise some tops may burn. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheets. Cover macaroons tightly and store in the refrigerator for 5 days or 3 days at room temperature. Macaroons freeze well, up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

For the Almond Joy Macaroons: after you scooped mounds of batter onto the cookie sheet to bake, press 1 almond into the tops of each mound. Bake as directed. Melt 4 ounces of pure semi-sweet, bittersweet, or milk chocolate and drizzle over cooled macaroons.

For the Funfetti Macaroons: gently mix in 1/2 cup of sprinkles into the batter and bake as directed.

For the White Chocolate Cranberry Macaroons: add 3/4 cup of dried cranberries into the batter when you add the shredded coconut. Bake as directed. Melt 4 ounces of pure white chocolate and drizzle over cooled macaroons.

    When you measure the coconut, do you pack it into the cups of spoon it into the cups? I don’t want any dry macaroons!! I have baker A.D.D, too. I always try to add something different every time I make something even if it’s just switching types of nuts.

    LOVE your blog. I literally bake something from your blog at least once a week. My husband thinks I’m a great baker… but really I’m just awesome at following the directions to your delicious recipes :)

    ANYWAY! I was wondering if I used Unsweetened organic shredded coconut if you felt like the sugar in the recipe would make up for the fact that the coconut was unsweetened? I only ask because it’s all I have in my pantry right now and I’d love to get started making these… immediately.

    Thanks Sally!

    I love all of your recipes and have been trying out different ones on these snowy days (red velvet chocolate chip over the weekend- YUM!) so I made these today! I love macaroons and was so excited to make them. My question is how long do you let them sit out to “cool”? I baked mine exactly for 20 minutes (golden brown on the edges) but them seem very soft still and they have been on the counter for a while. I hope I didn’t under-bake :(
    Thank you and keep the great recipes coming!!!

        • Sallyreplied on December 18th, 2013 at 8:58 am

          Nope, you don’t have to beat the egg whites to form peaks. Just beat until foamy. And I used cold eggs, though room temp would be OK too.

    Macaroons have always been one of my favorite things to make with my mom. I love your variations and how perfectly round your macaroons are!

      They’re such a classic cookie, aren’t they Mercedes? Love them.

    If I want to make my macaroons smaller (a tablespoon) do I bake them for a shorter amount of time?

      Yes, I’m unsure of the exact time. Maybe 15 minutes?

    Hello Sally :) can I use desicated coconuts?

      Hi Hollyn! Unfortunately, no. You need shredded or even flaked. Shredded is preferred though.

    Should the eggs be a room temperature or fresh out of the fridge???

    I love your recipes and am excited to try these. Lately my recipes (especially the baked goods) have turned out so much better when I can weight the ingredients. Do you have any idea how much the coconut should weigh? Also, do you have a weight for each cookie, by any chance? Thanks again for the great work you do!

      Hi Lynn! I’m actually not sure how much the coconut weighs – just slightly less than 14 ounces.

    Hi Sally, about to make your coconut macaroons for my coconut loving daughter’s birthday! Have you made this recipe with unsweetened coconut?
    I really like Bob’s Red Mill unsweetened flaked coconut, but don’t really know if it would be right for this recipe.

      Hi Bonnie! I love unsweetened coconut from bob’s red mill too. However, I just don’t think it’s the best coconut for my macaroon recipe. Maybe you can search the internet for another macaroon recipe that calls for unsweetened. Sorry!

    On your recipe ingredients it says 1/2 cup granulated sugar (50g) but 1/2 granulated sugar is actually 100g not 50grams. Did you mean 1/4 cup instead? or is it the full 1/2 cup? :) thanks! I wanted to make these but caught that little detail :)

    • Sallyreplied on April 26th, 2014 at 6:40 am

      It should be 1/2 cup – 100g. Thanks Leslie, I just reformatted this recipe the other week to fit my blog design and must have typed the wrong gram measurement.

      I’ve never been a fan of their taste and texture using unsweetened.

    I am going to make the cranberry macaroon. Just want to confirm measurements. Is the 3/4 cranberries in addition to the 4 3/4 cup coconut? Or are the coconut PLUS the cranberries to come to a total measurement of 4 3/4 cups. Just want to make sure the additional cranberries won’t make a cookie that is too dry or crumbly.

      Hi Connie – it’s 3/4 cup dried cranberries in addition to the 4 and 3/4 cups coconut.

    These are so good! This is the third time that I’ve had these and they’re great every single time! I think they’re at their best when they’ve been chilled in the freezer for an hour or so. Keep up the great recipes :)

    I made macaroons many years ago when it was possible to get them in a mix, even included the parchment paper. Haven’t made them since they were discontinued. Saw your recipe and loved the cranberry version. Will try as soon as I get all the fixings. Thanks much.
