Perk up your macaroons with fresh blueberries and sliced almonds.

  • Yield:makes 3 dozen cookies
  • Active time: 10 minutes
  • Total time:40 minutes


  • 21 ounces sweetened shredded coconut
  • 6 eggs whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 1/4 cups blueberries
  • 3/4 cup (6 3/4 ounces) sliced almonds


  1. 1.

    Adjust oven racks to upper and lower middle position and preheat oven to 325°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. 2.

    In the bowl of a food processor, combine coconut, egg whites, sugar, salt, and almond extract and pulse until combined, about 6 pulses. Add blueberries and pulse until berries are mostly broken down but some flecks of skin remain visable, about 5 pulses. Add almonds and pulse until nuts are incorporated into dough, about 6 pulses.

  3. 3.

    Use a medium size cookie scoop (2 3/4-inch diameter, 1 1/2 Tbsp) to scoop dough and drop it onto the prepared baking sheet in rounded balls. Bake cookies until golden, about 30 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
