Easy Coconut Macaroons

Coconut is used to make these sweet, soft snowballs totally scrumptious.
  • 400g sweetened desiccated coconut
  • 400g sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla essence
  • 2 extra-large egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1/4 tsp salt
1) Preheat the oven to 160°C/Gas mark 3. Combine the desiccated coconut, condensed milk and vanilla essence in a large bowl.

2) Whip the egg whites and salt on high speed in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment until they make medium-firm peaks. Carefully fold the egg whites into the coconut mixture.

3) Drop spoonfuls of the batter onto sheet pans lined with parchment paper using either a 2cm diameter ice cream scoop, or two teaspoons. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown. Cool and serve.
