Macaroons qualify as one of the easiest cookies to make; just "stand and stir," no fancy ingredients, machines or methods required. And they're easy to customize, too; just stir in dried fruit, chocolate chips or citrus zest.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Whisk the apricots, vanilla, salt, egg whites and orange zest together in a large bowl. Toss the coconut with the egg mixture until completely coated.

Moisten your fingertips with water. Form about 1 heaping tablespoon of the batter at a time into a tight ball and place on the prepared sheets, spacing them about 1 inch apart.

Bake until the edges are golden brown and the entire macaroon is nicely toasted and dry, 16 to 20 minutes. Transfer the baking sheets to a rack to cool. If desired, dip the bottoms of the cookies in the melted chocolate.

Store the macaroons in a tightly sealed container for up to a week.
