Coconut Macaroons

In honour of Rosh Hashanah, here is a recipe for Coconut Macaroons.

You'll need:

2 cups sweetened coconut
½ cup icing sugar
2 egg whites
1/2 of a lemon lemon (zested)

Preheat the oven to 350F

The most time consuming part of this recipe is zesting half the lemon.

Beat the sugar and lemon zest on high speed until it disolves.

Add the coconut and beat on low until combined

Until it looks like this

Use a 1/2 tsp measure and form little balls and place on baking sheet

Bake about 10 minutes or until golden.
Cool on a rack.

Super easy, and quick.

I never thought to beat the mixture once I added the shredded coconut. I'll try that later.

I usually hand-mix the mixture and then add double-boiled chocolate for chocolatey macaroons. I have never tried ones with lemon zest, I wonder what it'll taste like.

Have you ever tried putting chocolate chips into the mixture? It is delightfully delicious!

You'll notice that most of my recipes don't have chocolate...only because the men in this house don't care for it.

...and I don't eat the sweets.
