The cookie's toasty exterior together with a chewy richness and moist center definitely puts it at the top of anyone's holiday cookie list.
Try them with chocolate drizzle, too.
Cookies without glaze can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week (if they last that long!).

How to Make White Chocolate Cranberry Coconut Macaroons

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  • 2Make the macaroons:
    In a large bowl, combine coconut, sugar, flour and salt. Add the egg whites and stir with a large rubber spatula until combined. Stir in the almond and vanilla extracts, then the chopped dried cranberries.
  • 3Measure one heaping tablespoon of mixture for each and drop into a mound on the prepared cookie sheet, making sure they are nicely rounded and 2 inches apart.
