ITJB Round 2 Week 3: Passover Macaroons (p. 245) 5-5-12 to 5-12-12

May 9, 2012 - 3:33pm -- Urchina

Oh my, May is flitting away from me already! Sorry for the lateness of getting this week's posting up. But what a recipe for the week! Coconut! Macaroons! What's not to like? 

(I like 'em moist and chewy. And since mention of coconuts brings to mind a) tropical drinks and b) Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail, there may be a libation-fueled movie marathon in this week's lineup. But that may just be me). Enjoy them however you will!

I did a brief errata check: None noted on the NY Bakers website. So bake away!

Simple coconut macaroons in minutes

March 21, 2010 - 10:45am -- tonyjacobs

1 beaten egg
50g caster sugar
30g icing sugar (sifted)
145g unsweetened desiccated coconut

Preheat fan oven to 170

Beat sugar into egg with a fork, add icing sugar, then add coconut and mix well. 

Spoon some of the mixture into a small dish (approx 1.5 inches diameter), press in gently, and then turn out onto a greased baking tray, leaving a small mound shaped macaroon. This recipe makes around 14 macaroons.

Bake for approx 14 minutes until golden. Leave to cool on wire rack.
