Easy Macaroons Make Perfect Teacher Gift!

A good friend shared with me how she approaches teacher gifts with her kids. She tells them it’s OK to give something from your wallet (i.e. gift cards) but you should also give something from the heart. These super simple macaroons can be made by your child (while you supervise) and are a gift from the heart. Include the recipe, hand written by your child of course!


2 cups unsweetened coconut (medium works well)

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 egg whites

Yup 3 ingredients. That’s it!

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking tray with parchment paper. Mix ingredients together in a bowl. Press mixture into 1 tablespoon for uniform size and nice rounded shape. Plop out mixture with rounded side up on to parchment paper. Bake for about 8 minutes at 350 degrees or until edges start to brown. Makes a baker’s dozen.
