Ingredients

3 large egg whites

1/2 cup sugar

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 14-ounce package sweetened shredded coconut

3 pints vanilla ice cream, slightly softened

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk the egg whites, sugar, salt and vanilla in a large bowl until combined; fold in the coconut.
  2. Flatten heaping tablespoonfuls of the coconut mixture into 2-inch disks; place them about 1 inch apart onto the baking sheet. Bake until golden brown around the edges, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
  3. Gently sandwich the macaroons with the vanilla ice cream; freeze until set, at least 15 minutes.
