Happy Easter and Happy Passover! A time of new beginnings, Spring, flowers and warmer weather.

There are many Easter and Passover holiday baked treats to prepare but I opted for these delicious, quick and easy coconut almond macaroons. They are truly yummy! They have a slightly crunchy outer layer and a moist, not-too-sweet center. They are a breeze to make and will last up to 1 week! (If you can contain yourself from eating them all in one sitting).

Coconut Almond Macaroons

Ingredients: Makes 18 cookies

  • 1 cup cane sugar
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 3 cups unsweetened, shredded coconut
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with either parchment paper or a silpat.

In a medium bowl, whisk the sugar and egg whites. Stir in the coconut, almonds, vanilla, almond extract and salt. You may use 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla instead of vanilla extract and almond extract.

Drop the coconut mixture by a heaping tablespoon onto the prepared sheets. With moistened hands, squeeze each mound tightly together to form a pyramid shape.

Bake for 19 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through baking. Remove and allow to cool for about 20 minutes. Store in airtight containers at room temperature up to 1 week.
