Macaroons


Macaroons, the perfect thing to make when you have nothing in the cupboard but want something sweet to eat. Gluten free too!

Start with your ingredients. 2 C desicated coconut (I used shredded), 1/2C caster sugar, 2 egg whites.

Mix together and roll into balls. Wash and dry your hands every 3 balls, otherwise everything starts to stick. Bake in the oven at 180 until light brown.

Dip in melted chocolate. Yum!

Makes about 20 (I cut the recipe in half). Recipe from Donna Hay.

That sounds like what we call coconut macaroons. We never did put the chocolate on top, but that sounds so yummy and looks wonderful as well. I love chocolate as it is so good on anything. I think it would be good on a piece of cardboard.
:-)) I will have to try this sometime. eb

Do you have the recipe for "no bake cookies?" They are quick and easy, and you don't have to wait for them to bake.
