Project Dessert

Started going Through a 200 page dessert book 1-at-a-time daily until i got to #80 and the recipes were getting horrible so #100-#200 will be desserts i find that look interesting to make...enjoy!


Price to make: $5.24

Yield: about 20

Time: Prep – 12 minutes, Cook – 14 minute


3 cups coconut flakes

1 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla

3 egg whites

1 bar noblesse bittersweet chocolate

  • Mix coconut, cornstarch, sugar, vanilla and egg whites in a bowl.
  • Set bowl over a pot of boiling water until mixture thickens.
  • Drop tablespoonful's onto ungreased baking sheet and bake at 350 for 14 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and place macaroons onto wire rack to cool.
  • Melt chocolate and dip in only bottoms of macaroons.
  • Place on waxed paper and refrigerate to set.

Tips: These are great tasting macaroons but I cant enjoy the taste as it’s a pesach food. My double boiler didn’t heat up the mixture to thicken it only burnt the sides so I scooped out when it was cold. As the top is round when its scooped I don’t understand how they can say to dip in only the bottom but whatever I tried my best. I still have not figured how to melt chocolate as every time I do it doesn’t turn liguidy it just gets thick.
