A perfect addition to your holiday cookie platter, these Festive Coconut Macaroons are so easy to make you'll want to make them year round -- and we are totally okay with that!

What You'll Need

  • 2 (14-ounce) packages sweetened, flaked coconut
  • 5 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 candied red cherries, cut in half
  • 8 candied green cherries, cut in half

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place coconut in a large bowl, set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine egg whites and sugar over medium heat. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, just until sugar has dissolved and mixture is bubbly. Remove from heat and mix in vanilla extract. Pour over coconut; mix well.
  3. With your hands, squeeze together 1/4-cupfuls of mixture to form slightly rounded mounds. Place mounds 1-inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Place a half red and a half green cherry in center of each macaroon, cut sides pressed together.
  4. Turn off oven and leave macaroons in oven for 7 to 10 minutes (with oven door closed), until they turn golden.
