Coconut Meringue Macaroons

February 12th, 2013 posted by Tami Rose

Passover is a Jewish celebration during which only foods that are kosher are allowed. No foods containing yeast or grains are eaten. This is to commemorate the Israelites who fled quickly into the desert with no time for their breads to rise and were forced to bake the dough into hard crackers in the desert sun.The macaroon is an accepted dessert or snack for Passover. These macaroons are slightly crisp on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside. Great for an after-dinner dessert or even a midnight snack.

What You Need

2 Egg Whites 1/2 tsp. Vanilla 1/8 tsp. Salt 1 2/3 Sweetened Flaked Coconut 2/3 C. Sugar 2″ Ice Cream Scoop

What You Do

Beat together egg whites, vanilla, & salt until it forms soft peaks. Slowly add sugar to the mix, and then beat until stiff peaks form. Gently fold coconut into the meringue. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease a baking sheet. Using a 2″ ice cream scoop, drop the coconut meringue mixture onto the baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until very lightly browned.
