Salam to all,
Made this coconut macaroon today in an attempt to finish off the egg whites from making the prune layer cake. This is the last of the egg whites that were left. I have used the rest for cooking.....used it to coat the beef snitchel that I made for dinner 2 nights ago.
This recipe doesn't call for many ingredients and I only got 23 pieces of macaroons. I hope it will be finished in 1 sitting so that I can bake again once they are gone hehehez ;) The coconut aroma wafting from the oven makes me want to munch on kuih bangkit right now yummzzzz. The macaroon is a little crunchy on the outside yet chewy in the inside.
I left the macaroons plain, without the glaced green cherries for the topping bcos hb and Jannah doesn't like glaced cherries.
