  • Spray a large cookie sheet with non stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl beat the egg whites with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form (tips curl).
  • Gradually add the sugar, 1 tbsp at a time, beating until stiff peaks for (tips stand straight). Fold in the coconut.
  • Drop by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake in a 325 degree oven about 20 minutes or until edges are light brown. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
  • In a small saucepan, combine chocolate and shortening. Cook and stir over low heat until smooth.
  • Fill a sandwich bag with the chocolate and snip the corner off to form a small hole. Pipe chocolate through the hole over the macaroons. Let stand until chocolate is set. Store cookies in an airtight container.

    So I just made these. I only had 1 cup of coconut so i added 1 cup quick oats. They still turned out awesome. I'll make them with 2 cups coconut for my daughters birthday but it's nice to have the option for a lower fat cookie. delicious!

    Woah these are so good! Crispy outside with a chewy soft center, these are made all the better with a chocolate drizzle. My only complaint is that these have a sort of eggy taste, like a sweet coconut omlette! But I added some cocoa powder to half of the batch, and it solved the problem. This will be my new macaroon recipe. Thanks for posting!

    This is the same recipe I use for macaroons. Though I usually skip the chocolate drizzle to keep the calories a little lower. Whenever I have left over egg whites, I whip up some of these. It's so fast and my DH and kids love them.
