Macaroons are really simple to make, but still delicious and mildly impressive. Even better, they contain no flour so you can eat them during Passover!

Mine are plain, but you can mix things like mini chocolate chips, dried fruit, and nuts into the batter. They are very sweet (just look at the ingredients) and pleasantly chewy.

Yield: ~20 small macaroons


2 egg whites

1/2 tsp salt

14 oz bag of sweetened shredded coconut

3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk

~1 1/2 cups of mix-ins, such as nuts, dried fruit, or chocolate (optional)

(note: I made a double batch, so the photos are of larger quantities of ingredients)

Step 1: Beat the Eggs

(Preheat your oven to 300 deg F)

Put your egg whites in a bowl and add the salt. Beat them with a hand mixer (or a whisk, if you have lots of time and massive forearms) to stiff peaks.
