  • Mix first three ingredients in a saucepan and stir constantly with a rubber spatula over medium heat until mixture thickens and dries up considerably, about four minutes or 165 degrees.
  • Transfer mixture to a medium bowl, and stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Let cool uncovered in the refrigerator. Stir occasionally to speed up the cooling process.
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and grease lightly with pan spray.
  • Using a small ice cream scoop (I use a 1-ounce scoop), drop the batter in mounds 1-inch apart on the prepared baking tray. Bake for 10 minutes, rotate the tray, and then bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Turn broiler on low and cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Rotate as necessary for even browning.
  • Remove from oven and let cool completely on tray. Store macaroons in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
