  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring
  • 1-1/3 cups flaked coconut
  • 1 cup plus 1 package (10 to 12 ounces) white baking chips, divided
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 teaspoons shortening


  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 325°. Beat egg whites on medium speed until foamy. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high after each addition until sugar is dissolved. Beat in flavoring. Continue beating until stiff glossy peaks form. Fold in coconut, 1 cup baking chips and pecans.
  3. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 1 in. apart onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake 18-20 minutes or until firm to the touch. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. In a microwave, melt shortening and remaining baking chips; stir until smooth. Dip bottoms of macaroons into melted baking chips, allowing excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Store in an airtight container.
