Coconut Macaroons: A sticky, light treat for even the faintest of coconut-hearts

Ingredients: 1 cup organic sugar, 2 tsp pure vanilla extract, grated zest of 1/2 orange, 5 cups unsweetened shredded coconut, 3 large egg whites at room temperature, 1/2 tsp kosher salt

Recipe: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a half sheet pan with parchment paper. 

Combine the sugar and egg whites in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until glossy peaks form. Add the vanilla and salt and beat to combine. Fold in the orange zest and coconut flakes. Spoon tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets and bake for about 17 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.
