Snowflake Macaroons

Now according to this website these are only 1 point a piece! Now Im not 100% on that, but they are butter free so they can’t be too bad for you. While making them I was a little worried what they would turn out like, but oh my! Theses are probably he best cookies I have ever made! They are crispy on the outside and warm and buttery tasting on the inside…sigh. Yum. Mr. Gaunt thought they were amazing too. And they were so easy too, here is the recipe:

 

Ingredients:

2 2/3 cups Baker’s Angel Flake Coconut
2/3 cup sugar
6 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 egg whites
1 teaspoon almond extract

 

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease and flour cookie sheets. Mix coconut, sugar, flour and salt in bowl. Stir in egg whites and almond extract until well blended. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets. Bake 20 minutes or until edges of cookies are golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets. Cool on wire racks.

The only changes I made were that I used Whole Wheat flour and I did half white sugar half brown (because I didnt have enough white) I would do this combo again when making these because why mess with perfection?

Oh and I leave you with a fun little video Mr. Gaunt and I made when I showed him what happens when you squeeze a cattail! Very fun, but very messy. Enjoy!

  1. 1.) Those cookies look delectable.
    2.) Because I want to be the first to say it: Is it just me or is the cattail thing a bit “dirty”? Just me? Oh. Alright, so be it then.
    3.) I didn’t know cattails did that, thanks for the giggle.

    ❤ you.
