I just made these for my mother's cookie exchange she has every year- they came out SO cute and yummy! Got recipe from Food Network. Recipe called for unsweetened coconut - I did used sweetened and I did not sue the zest of orange (didn't have one)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line 2 baking sheets (cookie pans) with parchment.
  3. Whisk sugar, egg whites, cranberry, orange zest, vanilla and salt in large bowl.
  4. Toss coconut with egg mixture until completely coated.
  5. Moisten finger tips with water.
  6. Form about 1 heaping tablespoon of batter into pointed mounds or pyramids on prepared sheets (like little Christmas trees), space about 1 inch apart.
  7. Bake until edges are golden brown and entire macarron is nicely toasted and dry about 16-20 minutes.
  8. Transfer to rack to cool. Serve.

I loooove these! They are definitely addictive! The orange zest is a nice touch. I am giving this 4 stars because they were a tad hard to make. One thing that helped me was to wet my hands before forming each pyramid (I was determined to make them in the original recipe shape- I guess you could always use a small ice cream scoop and make them more organic). They disappeared faster than I made them!!

I'd give these five stars but to bake the cookies @ 350 degrees for 16 minutes they would burn. So, I baked them @ 325 degrees for 12 minutes then let set on baking sheet for 5 minutes, watching the baking process very carefully. I love the combination of orange, cranberries and coconut. A delicious and easy cookie recipe to prepare. I made sure to use unsulphured coconut. Lastly, I didn't shape the dough into rounds but placed a heaping tablespoon on a parchment lined baking sheet.
