Anyway - less waffle. Here is a recipe for kind of coconut macaroons. I am saying "kind of" because I really don't think they reach true macaroon status. They are pretenders to the macaroon throne but they are still super yummy and incredibly easy. I use them if people are coming for coffee or to tart up ice cream and chocolate sauce if I want a quick pudding.
|Kind Of Coconut Macaroons|
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 cup of caster sugar
- 2 cups of dessicated coconut
Preheat your oven to 180 degress celsius. Line a baking tray with baking paper. (Lined trays take out that "sticking to the tray" risk which is just a bore and ruins my day.) Mix all ingredients in an electric mixer. It will look all crumbly and fall apart a bit. Don't panic - it is supposed to look like this. See.

Then just shape the mixture into little balls about the size of a big walnut. Kind of smoosh it together. It will be fine - I promise. Pop the balls on your tray and put it in the oven for about 15 minutes or until they look nice and golden like my first photo.
That's it. How easy is that? I honestly have to hide these from my family to stop them eating them all before I get a chance to use them for whatever I had planned.
I hope everyone out there had a fantastic Monday. I am feeling weary so am going to head to bed nice and early.
