Almond Cardamom Macaroons

Almond Cardamom Macaroons

Ingredients:

  • 2.5  Cups Shredded Coconut
  • 2 Egg whites
  • 1/2  Cup Honey or Rice Syrup – rice syrup will make this less sweet
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1/3  Cup Finely Chopped Almonds, (food processor or blender makes quick work of this)
  • 1/2  teaspoon Cardamom

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place sweetener in a pan over low heat until it softens slightly.    Add coconut and egg white. Heat the mixture over low heat, stirring constantly until it all blends.  Remove from heat, stir in vanilla, cardamom and finely chopped almond. Let mixture rest until cool enough to touch.
  3. With moist hands, make small rounded mounds or triangles and place them side by side on the cookie sheet (they will not spread).  Bake about 30 minutes, or until lightly golden.  Allow to cool to room temperature on cookie sheet.
