Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be posting this recipe today. I got married 3 weeks ago and between getting everything ready for our amazing wedding (more on that later), going away for a week, and catching up on life, I haven’t had a chance to bake or blog in a long time. I missed being in the kitchen and chatting with you guys!

I finally got back into the kitchen and baked a ton over the last week. In honor of Cookie Week I’ll be sharing 3 cookie recipes with you throughout this week. And even better, 22 other bloggers are doing the same thing. That is a lot of cookies! I hope you’re ready to start getting into holiday baking – we have a ton of inspiration for you this week!

The cookies I’m sharing today are pretty special. They’re everything that is amazing about macaroons (the chewy coconut cookies, not to be confused with French macarons like these Nutella macarons), PLUS pumpkin. As most of us know, pumpkin makes pretty much everything better. Besides adding great flavor, it makes baked goods moist as well. In this case, you get soft, chewy, pumpkin pie-esque macaroons.

Basically, if you like macaroons (or coconut) and pumpkin, these are your new favorites. I wasn’t quite sure how the pumpkin flavor would get along with the coconut, but I should never have doubted pumpkin – it gets along great with others. I love pairing pumpkin with chocolate too (like these pumpkin chocolate chip blondies or pumpkin spice mocha), which isn’t the most obvious pair either. In fact, I bet drizzling these pumpkin coconut macaroons in chocolate would be phenomenal!

This is getting me thinking…what else goes well with pumpkin? I’m going to consult my Flavor Bible and see what else I can come up with! For now, check out this awesome pumpkin coconut macaroon recipe below, and make sure to scroll down a little further to find out about the Cookie Week giveaway!

Pumpkin Coconut Macaroons


  • Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup toasted pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk sugar and egg white together.
  3. Add coconut, pecans, pumpkin, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice and salt to bowl. Stir until everything is well incorporated.
  4. Use a spoon or cookie scoop, scoop dough into balls* the size of 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons. Place on the prepared baking sheet an inch apart.
  5. Bake for around 10 minutes, or until the macaroons are golden brown on the bottom and edges. The bigger the macaroons, the longer it will take.


*Traditionally, macaroons are slightly dome shaped, so you can shape them like this by hand if you prefer
