Macaroons — coconut, chocolate or almond — are a Passover tradition and appear at the end of the Seder with coffee and tea. Crunchy on the outside and chewy inside, these easy-to-make macaroons are so tasty, be sure to make a double batch to satisfy all the requests for seconds.
- Portion size 30 servings
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon liquid honey
- 1 3/4 cup finely shredded coconut
- 2 tablespoons potato starch
In bowl and using electric mixer, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar and honey until stiff, shiny peaks form. Gently fold in coconut and potato starch.
Drop by tablespoonfuls (15 mL), or, using a pastry bag, pipe into small mounds, onto well-greased baking sheets that have been dusted with potato starch. Bake in 325°F (160°C) oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until firm and lightly browned. Using spatula, transfer immediately to racks; let cool completely. Store in airtight containers at room temperature.
