Berry Thumbprint Macaroons

Start Cooking

Prepare the Macaroon Mixture

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with Gefen Parchment Paper or a lightly greased silicone baking mat. Set aside.

  2. Beat egg whites on high until stiff peaks form, about four minutes.

  3. Add sugar and vanilla. Beat on medium-high until the mixture is marshmallow-like, about two more minutes.

  4. Fold in the coconut.

Shape the Macaroons

  1. Using a two-tablespoon cookie scoop, form macaroons. Place on the prepared baking sheet, leaving just half an inch between macaroons.

  2. Press a thumb into the center of each one, making sure to leave a raised edge to contain the jam.

  3. Fill thumbprints with about three-quarters of a teaspoon of jam.

  4. Bake 20 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before removing from the baking sheet.
