Lime & Gin Coconut Macaroons Recipe

Lime & Gin Coconut Macaroons

4 egg whites

2/3 cup sugar

3 Tbsp. gin

1 ½ grated lime peel

¼ tsp. salt

¼ tsp. almond extract

1 pkg. (14 oz.) flaked coconut

½ cup flour

8 oz. white baking chocolate, melted

Preheat oven to 350 F.  On a small bowl, whisk the first six (6) ingredients until blended.  In a large bowl, toss coconut with flour; stir in egg white mixture.

Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto greased baking sheet.  Bake 15-18 minutes or until tops are light brown.  Remove from pans to wire to cool completely.

Dip bottoms of macaroons into melted chocolate, allowing excess to drip off.  Place on waxed paper; let stand until set.  Store in airtight container.
