Coconut Macaroons

Macaroon is a type of small circular cake, typically made form ground almonds, coconut or any other nuts with sugar and egg whites. The name of the cake comes from Italian Maccarone or maccherone meaning" paste", referring to the original almond paste which is one of the main ingredient.

Macaroons made from desiccated coconut instead of almond paste are most commonly found in UK, USA, Australia and many more. Coconut macaroons are often topped with a glace cherry or dipped in white chocolate. This recipe goes top 3rd day of BM 71 under the theme " Kids Delight- Cakes and Cookies".
