Coconut Macaroons

7 Mar

A friend invited us to dinner the other night and assigned us to bring dessert. I instantly ran all the recipes I’ve been wanting to do in my head but I didn’t really find anything I wanted to make for that night. Pies are the easiest classic dessert to bring and honestly I am sort of sick and tired of eating pies already. Also, I just made apple crumb pie the other week and G and I finished it off in 3 days.

So I thought, why not something sort of Filipino-ish? Yes! So I searched for easy desserts on the internet and stumbled upon this site: Panlasang Pinoy and it’s full of easy to do Pinoy recipes with mouth watering photos to boot.

I used to Love, with a capital L, coconut macaroons. But ever since a horrible experience when I was about 9 or so, I have never ever ever eaten a single macaroon until now. And after making this recipe, I remembered why I loved them so much and that horrible experience is now just a thing of the past.

Coconut Macaroons – from Panlasang Pinoy

* I cut this recipe in half and got maybe 60 or so small macaroons

  • 400 g sweet shredded coconut or dessicated coconut
  • 225 g butter
  • 100 g brown sugar
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 380 g condensed milk
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cream butter. Add sugar until well blended
  3. Add eggs then add condensed milk, mix well until blended
  4. Add shredded coconut and mix with a spatula
  5. Place 1 tablespoon of the mixture in a mold lined with paper cups
  6. Bake the macaroons for 30 minutes or until the top turns golden brown
  7. Deguster

Isn’t it easy as 1-2-3?

And everyone loved it as well.
