Heavenly Coconut Macaroons :)

Hi friends :)

Well I baked Coconut macaroons It tasted so good along with a cup of tea or as your favorite snack :)

A macaroon is very lightly baked confection which can either be as small sweet cake or meringue like cookies :) Here the recipe goes on :)

Crunchy coconut macaroons

Ingredients :

  • 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups Dessicated coconut or Sweetened shredded coconut or Fresh grated Coconut
  • 2 Egg whites 
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 cup powdered almonds or crushed almonds

Method:

  •  Preheat the oven to 325 F or 170 C. Line a parchment paper on the cookie sheet.
  • On medium heat,roast the shredded coconut or fresh grated coconut for about 10 minutes or it ll be very light brown color 
  • Turn off the heat.
  • Combine the cooled coconut,condensed milk,powdered/crushed almonds and vanilla extract together into the bowl.
  • Using a hand mixer or Stand mixer with a whisk attachment, Beat the egg whites and salt together on high speed to form a medium peak consistency.
  • Fold the egg whites mixture into the coconut mixture gently.
  • Take an ice cream scoop,  take a spoonful of batter into the  baking sheet
  • Alternatively you can use a piping bag, pour the batter to it and make a peak formed on the baking sheet.
  • Bake it for about 15 to 20 minutes or until its top brown.
  • Allow it to cool on the cooling rack.
  • Serve it along with a cup of tea.
  • If you want the macaroons to dip into the chocolate It will be delightful for your kids :)
  • Melt the chocolate pieces along with 1 Tablespoon of butter into the oven proof bowl and Microwave it for about 30 seconds.
  • Dip the coconut macaroons into the chocolate and allow it to keep on the parchment paper until it is firm and set.

Happy Baking!!
