Happy Father's Day!

Baked goods make great gifts. They're fun to make and you get to (hopefully) sample!

So for Father's Day? Macaroons for my Dad who loves coconut.

This recipe is so easy and it delivers amazing macaroons. No mushy-is-there-coconut-in-this macaroons. Real deal macaroons.

2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 c sugar
generous pinch salt
1 t almond or vanilla extract
3 c sweetened shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 350. Grease baking sheet or use parchment paper. In large bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, salt and almond or vanilla extract. Blend in the coconut until completely incorporated. Don't worry when it doesn't look like your typical batter. Drop generous teaspoonfuls (or tablespoonfuls!) onto the baking sheet. Bake until golden brown and crisp around the edges, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool on wire rack.

I LOVE almond flavor, so I always use almond extract. You've got to try these!
