Servings: 2 dozen
Preparation Time: 10 minutes

1. Preheat oven to 300° F. Grease a cookie sheet.

2. In mixer add egg whites and beat until frothy. Add the cream of tartar and beat until stiff peaks form. Gradually add the honey, then the extract.

3. Turn off mixer and gently fold in the shredded coconut. You want the mixture to be stiffer than meringue (not soupy), but not as thick as cookie dough. If it's soupy, add a little more shredded coconut.

4. Drop by rounded spoons onto cookie sheet. Bake 20-25 minutes.

Can't wait to try these. I love making (and eating) Macaroons, but never tried them with orange.
One baking tip: I've found that using unbleached parchment paper on the baking sheets makes clean up super easy.

Is the shredded coconut sweetened or not?
