I remember coconut macaroons being a favorite of my Dad's.
A coconut macaroon is a type of macaroon most commonly found in Australia, the United States, the The Netherlands and Germany, and is directly related to the Scottish macaroon. Its principal ingredients consist of egg whites, sugar and shredded dried coconut. It is closer to a soft cookie/biccie than its meringue brightly coloured cousin, and is equally as sweet.
You will need...
4 egg whites
200 grams of caster sugar
300 grams of desiccated coconut
Grated zest of 1 large lime
100 grams of plain chocolate melted
You then need to...
Pre-heat oven to 180C
Mix the egg whites, caster sugar and desiccated coconut together with a fork to make a soft paste. Stir in the lime zest. Shape into small mounds on baking paper on baking tray then bake for 12 minutes until just very lightly browned. When cool drizzle with melted chocolate. These will keep for up to 1 week in a cake tin.
