These macaroons are quick and easy to make. We like to keep them on hand, especially when we want a little something sweet with our cup of hot chocolate or coffee. Pile some high on a pretty plate for your neighbor, too. I guarantee they won't forget your kindness! Eat them plain, or dip in chocolate. Enjoy!

The time depends on how big the cookies are. Time is per batch. I can bake 3 batches from recipe.
10 Min
10 Min


  • 1
    box angel food cake mix - about 16 ounces
  • 1 1/2
    teaspoons almond extract
  • 1/2
    cup water
  • 3
    cups of sweetened flaked coconut
  • ·
    ~~ parchment paper to line baking pan. i also reuse it each time. cleanup is a snap. to bake the cookies, i use an aire gourmet baking sheet, which is an excellent baking sheet, and it is almost impossible to burn the cookies.



  1. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper. (reuse for each batch) No need to grease. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and place rack in CENTER of the oven. Bake cookies 10 to 12 minutes, depending on your oven.
  2. You will need a box of angel food cake mix and a bag of flaked, sweetened coconut, almond extract and water.
  3. Using a hand mixer, mix the angel food cake and the water and extract together, on low, for one minute, then scrape the bowl and beat for one minute more. Gently fold in the coconut.
  4. Drop the cookies by heaping teaspoon onto the baking sheet, two inches apart. (I do mine with a tablespoon because I like them bigger, takes one minute longer to bake them in my oven)
  5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes depending on your oven. Size of cookie also makes a difference in the time it takes to bake. Don't overbake the cookies! They should look like toasted marshmallows look when they are just barely starting to turn a tan color. See my photo.
  6. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
  7. Here is how they look.
  8. Give a plate of these cookies as a gift!
  9. Enjoy!
