Coconut Macaroons

These are the most rich and delicious little cookies. Not many ingredients to deal with. very quick and easy to make. I usually make these along with other favorites when I make a box of cookies to give away.
2 egg whites
Dash of salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
Beat egg whites (at room temperature) and salt in a medium mixing bowl until foamy. Add sugar and vanilla, beating until stiff peaks form. Fold in coconut and pecans. Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake at 350F. for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and place cookie sheets on a damp cloth for a few seconds. Remove macaroons to wire racks to cool. ENJOY!
