Easy and Yummy Coconut Macaroons  
4 large egg whites
1¼ cups sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon dark agave nectar or honey
2½ cups desiccated coconut
¼ cup flour
½ teaspoon vanilla essence

(Some dark chocolate for dipping, if you like)

1. Mix all the ingredients except the vanilla (and the chocolate) in a saucepan over moderate heat. Keep stirring, and scraping the bottom of the pan. When it begins to scorch at the bottom - it might take a while to get to this point, be patient and keep stirring - remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Leave to cool to room temperature.

2. Blob mixture onto tray lined with baking parchment. I've tried doing petit-four sized little ones and much bigger and higher ones -- both work.

3. Put in 180C oven until golden brown on top (anywhere between 10 and 20 minutes depending on size, keep checking)

4. Leave to cool. If using chocolate, melt on stove or in microwave, and dip macaroons at will. Or drizzle chocolate over the top. Or roll 'em in chocolate. Either way. Refrigerate until chocolate has set.

Edited for Queso: 350F oven :)
