Zest Fresh Pastry shows off Lemon-Lavender Coconut Macaroons

Posted: Updated:

Here's the Lemon-Lavender Coconut Macaroons from Zest Fresh Pastry, LLC: 


  • 1 (14-ounce package) sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried organic lavender buds
  • 3 large egg whites, at room temperature

Method of Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. 
  2. In a medium-size bowl, mix the coconut, sugar, zest, and lavender together until well combined. Add the egg whites to the dry ingredients and mix until well incorporated.
  3. Scoop 2 tablespoon-size mounds onto the prepared baking sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes, then rotate the pan and continue to bake until the macaroons are golden brown, about 15 more minutes. Transfer the parchment along with the macaroons to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.

Makes about 20 cookies.
