Makronen are a traditional Christmas cookie, made of almonds, sugar, and egg whites. Often the almonds are replaced with coconuts, making Kokosmakronen (coconut macaroons). The almonds may also be replaced with hazelnuts, pine nuts, oatmeal, or even a mixture of nuts and other ingredients. Traditionally, makronen cookies are baked on wafers (Oblaten). 

Makronen date back to 17th century Italy. The name originates from the greek work makarios, meaning "delightful."
