Macaroons - the quick, easy way to make them perfectly.
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
5 1/2 - 6
can (300 ml sweetened condensed milk)
(14 oz can in the US)
large egg whites
Mix together the sweetened condensed milk, salt and vanilla, then fold in the coconut.
Whip the egg whites to soft peaks and then fold the coconut mixture gently through the beaten egg whites.
Drop the dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone liner. These WILL stick to a regular greased baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees F until golden brown, about 25-30 minutes. Cool completely on the baking sheet before removing the cookies.
For Lemon, Lime or Orange Macaroons, fold about 1 1/2 to 2 tbsp finely minced citrus zest into the dough.
If you want to sandwich the cookies with a little chocolate ganache as pictured, simply heat 1/4 cup whipping cream over low heat and melt in 1 cup chocolate chips. I prefer to make smaller macaroons when sandwiching them together,
