This coconut macaroons recipe yields absolutely decadent treats. With light crispy shells enveloping deliciously chewy centers, these macaroons are an absolutely satisfying sweet treat for any occasion.
I have been wanting to try making coconut macaroons for the longest time until today when I decided to finally try them. And I totally loved the way they turned out with light texture that was crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.
It all started with me thinking of baking something for my kids. We have run out of cookies at home and I could see them checking the fridge and the kitchen for things to snack on. I have 2 teenage boys who are constantly hungry and a 5 year boy who constantly tries to follow his older brothers. Plus my husband, I have enough quorum to make baked goodies often and it gives me great pleasure in doing just that.
So I looked for ingredients at home to make their favorite chocolate chip cookies and then I saw my packet of desiccated coconut which I purchased to make coconut cookies for Diwali last October. And I decided that its finally time that I make my coconut macaroons that I have been so wanting to try.
The macaroons turned out really awesome. I made a small batch of 47 small cookies, and by the time I finished baking the last batch, almost 1/4 of the cookies were already gone!
This macaroons recipe has a total of 6 ingredients. The main ones are off course the egg whites and sugar. Next to that is desiccated coconut, cornflour, salt and vanilla essence.
The process of making coconut macaroons is the same as making plain macaroons which typically starts with the whisking of egg whites until stiff peaks form. Sugar is then added while the whisking is continued until the egg whites turn glossy and still remain stiff. The salt and vanilla essence goes next and in the case of these coconut macaroons, the cornflour and desiccated coconut is folded in right at the end.
A couple of important points to note when making macaroons are:
With the recipe measurement below, I was able to make 47 cookies. The final number you get out of this recipe will vary depending on the size you wish to make your macaroons.
These are best served within a day or two. Store remaining in airtight container.
