Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons

14 ounces sweetened, flaked coconut
2/3 cup sugar
6 tablespoons flour
1/4 tsp salt
4 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla

4 ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Mix coconut, sugar, flour, and salt in a large bowl. Add egg whites and vanilla, and stir until well blended. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes or until cookie edges are lightly browned. Remove cookies from cookie sheet and cool on wire rack.

Melt baking chocolate in microwave or double boiler. Dip cooled cookie bottoms in chocolate, lift and allow excess to drip off. Place on parchment paper and refrigerate until cool and hardened.
