Almond Coconut Macaroons

April 9, 2010

These are the cookies featured in SiftingRealities: Episode Two: GUN IN MY TOILET (more info can be  found in the previous post).  In the episode, Rich thinks Belinda is presenting the cookies as a peace offering of sorts, but ends up just stealing her plate of comfort food.  The macaroons in the episode are sans ground almonds.

Above: egg whites (4 in this case as I am doubling the recipe), medium unsweetened coconut, ground almonds, sugar and pure vanilla.

Whip eggs and vanilla until soft peaks form, which look something like above.

Still beating eggs, slowly add the sugar and then continue to beat until (fairly) stiff, glossy peaks form (as shown above).  Some times this magic just doesn’t happen, make the cookies anyway, they won’t be pretty, but they’ll still be tasty!

Fold in the coconut and ground almonds, until just mixed.

Drop rounds tablespoons approx. 2 inches apart on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.  Bake.

And… enjoy!
