Coconut macaroons

Makes 24 pieces

Coconut macaroons make a fantastic little after school treat for the kids. They're quick to put together too.

  • 2½ shredded coconut
  • ¾ cup caster sugar
  • 4 eggs whites
  • 1½ tsp natural vanilla extract

1 Preheat oven to 170°C. Combine the coconut and sugar in a large bowl, then mix in the egg whites and vanilla and stir until smooth. Place in a bowl, cover with cling film and refrigerate overnight.

2 Form into two-teaspoon size pyramid-shaped mounds and arrange on a lined oven tray. Bake for 15 minutes until deep-golden, then cool on the tray.
