Coconut Macaroons

Macaroons are simple cookies that are easy to make and relatively good for you. {wink wink}

This time of year I find myself with an abundance of egg whites (from using the yolks for egg nog).  What's a girl to do?  I must make macaroons!

2 3/4 cups shredded coconut
2/3 cup sugar  (if using sweetened coconut decrease or omit sugar)
1/4 cup flour
1/4 t salt
4 egg whites (or 1/2 cup)
1/2 t almond extract or vanilla

Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl, stir well.  Add egg whites and extract, stir well.  Drop by teaspoonfuls on greased baking sheets or parchment paper push in almonds.  If you want to be doubly naughty, add some chocolate chips.

Bake at 325 for 22 minutes or until golden (watch close!) Remove immediately to cool.
