1. Cocount Macaroons
Passover dinner is important - but in our opinion, so is dessert! Give your guests a sweet, flour-free treat with these sweet coconut macaroons.

1 large vanilla bean
2 large egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
3 cups shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened)
3 ounces white chocolate, for melting
raspberries for garnish, if desired

- Preheat your oven to 325º F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment.

- Split the vanilla bean pod down the center with a knife. Use the dull edge of the knife to scrape out all the seeds. Add them to a large bowl along with the egg whites and sugar and whisk until blended. Stir in the shredded coconut until completely coated with the egg white mixture.

- Scoop the coconut mixture onto the lined baking sheet with a cookie scoop, creating about 1.5″ diameter balls. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until the coconut starts to turn a golden brown on the edges. Remove from the oven and cool completely. Melt the chocolate in a double broiler. Drizzle lightly over the macaroons. Garnish with raspberries.
