Coconut Macaroons

No, these aren't the cute meringue cookies with the sweet filling, but they're just as good!  This cookie combines coconut, vanilla, & a dip in chocolate for one delicious treat!

Coconut Macaroons
yield 32 cookies
1 bag (14oz) shredded sweetened coconut
4 large egg whites
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
6 oz melted chocolate (semisweet or dark is recommended)

Mix the coconut, egg whites, sugar, flour, salt, and vanilla in a bowl until completely combined.  Drop by the tablespoon onto a lined cookie sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes at 325 degrees, until the cookies are lightly golden.  When cooled, dip the bottom (or drizzle the top!) with the chocolate.  Enjoy!
