- Preheat your oven to 400ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, egg whites, and vanilla until frothy. Fold in the coconut until fully moistened.
- Scoop tightly packed teaspoonfuls of the mixture evenly spaced onto the baking sheet.
- Bake for about 5 minutes, or until the tops of the mini coconut macaroons turn a light golden brown. Do not over bake or the centers will not remain soft and chewy.
