Tips and Tricks to Making the Easiest Coconut Macaroon Cookies

Just Use one Bowl

Did I mention that you can use own bowl for these Easy Coconut Macaroon Cookies? That’s right.  How simple is that?  Just measure and place all the dry ingredients in the bowl.  Then pour the wet ingredients on top of the dry ingredients and stir to mix well.

Use a Scoop – Easy Peasy

Make things easy for yourself, use a small scoop to scoop up the batter.  With the palm of your hand press the batter into the scoop to compress the dough and release the cookie batter onto the cookie tray lined with parchment paper.

Don’t be afraid to use your fingers. If the Coconut Macaroons look like their coming apart, mold it back together with damp fingers right on the cookie tray.

If you don’t have a scoop, no problem.  You can also use a spoon to scoop them onto your hand and roll them with the palm of your hands until you have created a ball shape. Then place them on the cookie tray.

Know When They are Done

These cookies will take about 20 to 25 minutes to bake through.  However, you are going to want to keep an eye on them as they are baking.  At about 20 minutes, if you see that the cookie tops look a little toasted, remove them from the oven and let cool.  These coconut macaroons will stay moist as they cool down.

Continue to watch them bake so that they are not left too long.  Otherwise the peaks of the Coconut Macaroon Cookies will burn. So keep a watchful eye.

Coconut and Chocolate

Did someone say coconut and chocolate?  Why not!  For something slightly different, you can also dip the bottoms of these Coconut Macaroons in melted chocolate. Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate or White Chocolate.  Or another fun idea is to drizzle chocolate on top of the coconut macaroons.

Storing These Cookies

These cookies store very well in a zipped storage bag at room temperature for a maximum of 2 weeks.  For a longer shelf life, you can freeze them for a maximum of two months.  When you are ready to use them, take them out from the freezer and thaw them out in the fridge overnight.  You can then take them from the fridge to room temperature. Always keep them sealed in a container or in a zipped bag to preserve their freshness.
