Recipe 1 – Coconut Macaroons
For this recipe, the vegetarians can have a sigh of relief as it is totally vegetarian with no use of egg as you would see for yourself. It is a cookie as you would find and go hogging for in a bakery. Being homemade, you can be sure of giving your kids a healthy dessert.
Ingredients for 8-9 macaroons:
- Half a cup about 150 grams of condensed and sweetened milk
- Grated coconut about 1.5 cups
- Vanilla essence about ½ teaspoons
- 7 to 8 cherries, sliced in halves, this is entirely optional
Take the condensed milk and pour it in a bowl to whisk. After you whisk it for a minute or two, add the coconut in batches to it. Add first half of coconut to the milk and mix well. Once it is mixed and coconut has already absorbed most of the milk, add the second batch. Now mix well until a tight dough is formed. Rub some butter on your palms as the mixture would be a bit sticky. Now make the shapes out of the dough pinching small amounts from it. You can shape it to any form you want. For best results, round is better. Do keep your oven ready for baking. If you have convection ovens, preheat them to 180 degrees before you begin with the ingredients. Now place the cherries over the macaroons, which is totally up to you.
In the preheated oven, now place the macaroons at safe distance from each other. Let it bake for around 15 minutes and check the oven. The macaroons would have turned to golden brown by now.
They are now ready to eat.
Hope you love them!
