Introduction: Coconut Macaroons
This instructable will teach you how to make delicious coconut macaroons.
Step 1: Gather Your ingredients
You will need:
14 oz shaved coconut
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 large egg whites
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbs flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
Step 2: Make This Goop
I know it looks odd but it is great.
1 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
Step 3: Mix
Mix together the coconut and the brown sugar mixture you made earlier.
Step 4: Separate Your Eggs
Next you have to separate your two remaining eggs. The easiest way to do this is to use an egg separator. that is the big yellow thing in the picture. to use it crack an egg open like you were making eggs and make sure the yolk ( the yellow part of the egg) lands in the center of the egg separator. Do this to both eggs.
Step 5: Whip Dem Eggs! (and Salt)
Put the egg whites and kosher salt in the mixer on the high. beat until the eggs are a little stiff and look like snow.
Step 6: Fold
Carefully fold together the coconut and the whipped egg. Also preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 7: Line the Pan
Now line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
Note: The potato does nothing, but it is funny.
Step 8: Make the Macaroons
Now roll the macaroons into balls that are the size of ping pong balls (or bigger). put them in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 min.
You could also make them in a dutch oven with 15 coals on top and 9 coals on the bottom if you want to make this for a camp out.
Step 9: Feast
Now eat your macaroons. this recipe should make 15-20 depending on how big you made them.
