Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 vanilla bean pod, scraped
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp ground white pepper
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/16 tsp ground cloves
  • 7 oz shredded flaked coconut

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Add egg whites, sugar, vanilla bean, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, white pepper, salt, and cloves to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Whip on high speed for 4-5 minutes, or until the mixture is frothy.
  • Stir in the flaked coconut until evenly combined. Using a 1-1/2 tablespoon capacity cooking scoop, scoop macaroon mixture and press it into the scoop very well to create as dense of a macaroon as you can. Place macaroons about 1 1/2" apart on the sheet.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the tops and bottom edges are golden brown. Let macaroons cool completely on the baking sheet before gently transferring to an air-tight container for storage.
  • Pair with a mug of Bigelow Vanilla Chai Tea for the ultimate fall pairing.
