Making coconut macaroons couldn’t be easier: You whisk together a few ingredients over simmering water, stir in coconut and flour, and relax while the dough chills. Drop the dough onto baking sheets by the tablespoon and bake, then add a drizzle of melted chocolate over the top for an easy decoration that will earn these a spot on your next cookie plate.
What to buy: Sweetened, shredded coconut is also known as angel flake.
Game plan: It is essential to give the dried coconut time to soak up the egg white mixture so that you end up with round, fluffy macaroons instead of flattened disks. This process takes at least 6 hours, but you’ll get the best results if the dough chills overnight.
