Coconut Macarons


Want to make very simple Macarons, as my previous macarons was widely accepted and good hit on the hit counter.

Yes, Coconut Macarons.  But, in south india, its widely called Coconut biscuit. (Though it’s pretty close to biscuits but falls under Confectionery group. because, of egg white and no Flour used in the recipe)

Those who were in their teen’s during 80’s, they know about  these biscuit and love it too. In 80’s the bakery’s are getting popular in urban’s and their evening specials are Coconut Macarons (biscuit) and Puff.  I am a fan of both.

There are lot of memories attached to this Coconut Macarons, I am sure, everyone will a story behind to say.

The Ingredient’s  are  :      2 Egg Whites      ;      1/2  Cup Sugar      ;      1 ¼  Cup Desiccated Coconut      ;   1/2 tsp Vanilla Essences.     ;   Salt to taste

In a large bowl, whisk together egg whites, sugar, vanilla essence and salt until frothy. Add coconut and mix to combine.

Using ice cream scoop, scoop the coconut mixture, place 1/2 inch apart on prepared baking sheet (macaroons will not spread during bake)

Bake, in the Preheat oven of 180°C until lightly golden (But, I wanted brownish color, so kept little longer. i.e.  35 to 40 minutes) don’t forget to rotate baking sheet halfway through.

Allow it cool for some time (it will be easy to remove from the baking paper) and transfer to wire rack to cool completely, then store in an airtight container.
