I am sure you have had many a macroon. However, have you ever tried eggless ones? Now, here is one recipe that you can satisfy at least vegetarians with. They are very moist, chewy a slightly crunch exterior and yes very easy to make. For once I even managed to get the all the same size (I used a cookie scoop to help). The only problem with the scoop is that when you press the lever to release a bit of the macroon gets slight stuck so you have to mush it together. Quite an easy task though.
- 14oz bag sweetened coconut flakes
- 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tbsp heavy cream
- 1.5 tbsp all purpose flour
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
Pour the condensed milk into a bowl with the extract and cream and stir. Add the coconut flakes and stir to combine and wet all the flakes.
Dust the flour on top and combine again.
Use a cookie scoop (medium size). Scoop onto a parchment or silicone lined sheet. Bake at 325F for 17 -20 mins turning the tray halfway through the baking procedure. The macroons are done when you see the slightly browning. Take them out of the oven and let them cool.
They stayed for 3 days at my house and then they were gone.
