      Coconut Macaroons
      Bake: 20 minutes per batch

      2-2/3 cups flaked coconut (7 ounces)
      2/3 cup granulated sugar
      1/3 cup all-purpose flour
      1/4 teaspoon salt
      3 egg whites
      1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1/4 teaspoon almond extract

      4 ounces semisweet chocolate (optional)
      1 teaspoon shortening (optional)

      1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease and flour a large cookie sheet or line with parchment paper; set aside.

      In a medium mixing bowl combine coconut, sugar, flour, and salt. Stir in egg whites and vanilla extract.

      2. Drop by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until edges are golden brown.

      Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool.

      3. If desired, in a small saucepan melt chocolate and shortening over low heat. Dip bottoms of cookies in melted chocolate mixture.

      4. Makes about 30 cookies

      5. Tip: To drizzle chocolate over macaroons, place melted chocolate mixture in a resealable plastic bag. Snip a small hole in the corner of the bag.

      Pipe chocolate mixture across each cookie in a crisscross pattern.
