Christmas Wreath Macaroons


Here's a delightful little recipe we found in Southern Living Magazine (12/2014), that has been slightly altered. Enjoy! 

14 oz. sweetened shredded coconut
2 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Candy sprinkles and chopped candied cherries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In medium bowl, combine coconut, egg whites, sugar, and vanilla. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto parchment-lined baking sheets. make a hole in center of each to form a wreath shape. Sprinkle with nonpareils and cherries. Bake for 14-16 minutes, until coconut begins to brown. Transfer to wire racks to cool. Makes 3 dozen cookies.
