Now I'm shuffling around more baking needs to be fast and easy. I've always wanted to try and make coconut macaroons but one reason or another have not got round to it. This morning Alexa and I cooked up these rather dodgy but delicious ones in 25 minutes flat. Ace!
* 80g Dessicated Coconut * 50g Caster Sugar * teaspoon of Cornflour * 1 Egg White * Handful of Chocolate Drops (optional) * Small bar of chocolate to melt and dip macaroons in *
Preheat oven to 180 C and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Mix coconut, sugar, cornflour and chocolate drops together. Beat Egg White until light and frothy but not quite to the soft peak stage and fold into the dry ingredients. Using a tablespoon place balls of the mixture onto your tray and cook for fifteen minutes.
When cooked and cooled melt your chocolate bar and dip the bottom of your macaroons into it-leave to set upside down. Enjoy with a cup of tea or hot chocolate!
