DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix together the coconut, condensed milk, and almond extract, keeping the coconut as fluffy as possible.
  • Whisk the egg whites and salt until soft peaks form.
  • Fold the egg whites into coconut mixture.
  • Using a soup spoon, scoop the macaroon batter into mounds or balls about the size of a Ping-Pong ball.
  • Place about 1 inch apart on the parchment-lined cookie sheet.
  • THE MACAROON BATTER SHOULD BE HANDLED VERY GENTLY.
  • Do not squeeze the batter.
  • If your fingers become sticky from sliding the batter off the spoon, dip them in cold water.
  • Bake the macaroons until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.
  • Allow the macaroons to cool a bit before removing them, but don t let them sit too long or they will glue themselves to the parchment.
