Ingredients list for coconut macaroons recipe

For 45 to 50 coconut macaroons

  • 7 ounces (200g) grated coconut — it’s better when you grate a fresh coconut if you can grab one.
  • 7 ounces (200g) of caster sugar
  • Few drops of vanilla extract (optionnal)
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs

Instructions

1. Preheat your oven to 360°f
2. Beat the eggs, sugar, vanilla extract and salt until it gets frothy. The texture should be a bit stiff and white. Then add the grated coconut and mix well.
3. Using 2 teaspoons, drop small mounds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, then shape them by hand so they cook better. Be careful to space them by one inch approx.
4. Bake in a hot oven at 360°f (180°c) for 10 to 12 minutes per batch (coconut macaroons should be just golden). Let dry your coconut macaroons before removing from the parchment paper.
