Vida’s Coconut Macaroons

It’s been several years since we’ve had a new post here on ‘At Grandma’s Table‘. I recently ran across this old family recipe and being that it’s one of the EASIEST cookie recipes I’ve ever used, I felt compelled to share it here. I hope you enjoy!

This recipe is from my Mother’s friend, Vida. She was a great cook, baker and homemaker. As kids, we always enjoyed a trip over to Vida’s house! Here’s her recipe for Coconut Macaroons:

INGREDIENTS:
1-1/2 cups shredded coconut
1/2 cup sugar
1 beaten egg
1/2 TSP. almond flavoring

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 325°
Combine ingredients and drop by teaspoonfuls on to greased cookie sheet. Bake until brown, about 20 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet. Remove with metal spatula and cool completely on wire rack.

COOKING TIP:
Even on a well-greased cookie sheet, these cookies will tend to stick a bit. If you use a newer or ‘bright’ cookie sheet, they will be a little easier to remove. Parchment paper is a good option to eliminate the sticking.

    1. I was wondering if you had noticed that! 🙂

      Not sure how they would come out using a sugar substitute. Guess that would depend on what you use…quite a few different choices out there, both natural and man-made. If you try it with a sub, let me know how they come out!
