Whew! So you made it through the appetizer, and your eyes have feasted on the main course, and now you're ready for dessert! For my Diva Dinner Date, I decided to make one of my all time favorite desserts: Macaroons. These little beauties are on healthier than most dessert fare and perfect if you're trying to avoid wheat, since they contain very little. I served mine with gorgeous organic blackberries! My BDFF's loved my macaroons so much, they asked for some to go! Shout out goes to Momma D for inspiring this recipe.
4 egg whites whipped to soft peaks
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp flour
14 oz shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add egg whites to a stand mixer, or whisk by hand, until they have soft peaks. Then, add the sugar and flour, mixing into the egg whites, followed by the coconut.
On a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, spoon 1 tbsp mounds.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until nicely toasted. Using a spatula, transfer to a rack or plate to cool.
Serve with fresh berries.
