  • 7 to 8 cherries sliced in halves, optional

Instructions

  • preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius/356 degrees fahrenheit for atleast 15 minutes before baking.

making coconut macaroons mixture

  • take condensed milk in a bowl. with a wired whisk, beat the condensed milk for 2 minutes continously. 
  • then add the desiccated coconut. add the coconut in batches. overall i added 1.5 cups of unsweetened desiccated coconut (90 grams) in two batches. mix well.
  • then add next batch of 1/2 cup of desiccated coconut.
  • mix again very well. the mixture consistency should be like what is shown in the pic. it should not be batter like. a thick dropping consistency is also fine.

  • depending on the type of desiccated coconut, you may require to add more or less than what is mentioned in the recipe. so add accordingly.
  • add 1/2 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla essence. mix again very well.
  • the mixture is sticky. so rub some coconut oil or butter in your palms and pinch balls from the coconut mixture. roll and flatten them. 

baking coconut macaroons

  • place them on a greased baking tray. do grease the tray well with coconut oil or butter. you can also spoon the mixture on the baking tray. i wanted an even shape and look, so i shaped them in round cookies.
  • press lightly half of each glazed red cherry on the macaroons. cherries are optional and you can skip them.
  • bake at 180 degrees in a preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes till they are pale or light golden from the top. do keep a check as oven temperatures differ.
  • this is how the bottom of these coconut macaroons should appear. slightly more browned than regular cookies.
