Jewel-toned fillings made of jam dress up the familiar coconut macaroon. For finest results, choose a variety of tart-sweet jams—apricot, plum, sour cherry—to lend color and contrast.


  • 2 large egg whites
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • cups unsweetened shredded


Preheat the oven to 325°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Beat the egg whites in a large bowl until frothy. Add the sugar, coconut, cinnamon, and salt. Using your hands, mix the ingredients together until they are well combined and form a moist, sticky batter.
