coconut and macadamia macaroons

I promised you a full post on coconut macaroons and as I'm good for my word, here it is. 

I've been making coconut macaroons for passover for years and I've always used the same recipe. This year, I decided to try something new from my man bill.

 It took a little bit of tracking down to find this recipe for you, but here it is.

Coconut Macaroons
2 egg whites
115g caster (superfine) sugar
150g shredded coconut
100g roughly chopped macadamia nuts 
1 teaspoon lime zest

Preheat the oven to 160°C. Mix together the egg whites, caster sugar, coconut, nuts and lime zest in a bowl (you may need to use your hands). Shape tablespoons of the mixture in to mounds on paper-lined baking trays. Bake 10-15 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool on trays. Makes 20.

The grated lime rind was a nice addition to the recipe but overall I think the recipe needed more coconut. 

I baked up a storm for Passover and I'm a little scared to step onto the scales. In addition to the macaroons, I made 2 types of brownies, a batch of Nonna's cookies and a failed attempt at this macaroon tart recipe, so there are plenty more posts and pictures to come.

Back to work for me tomorrow following a much needed 5 day break.

Bye for now,
