I think it’s about time I share with you one of my most favorite, no fuss-sweet recipes. This recipe is particularly timely for Passover, as there is no flour and the leavening agent is egg whites. If you use an ice cream scooper to create a dome like shape, my macaroons are like mini cakes. For an elegant decadence, dip them in your favorite melted dark chocolate and give them a dusting of edible gold.
Enjoy them as portable treats. Have them for a snack or they’re ideal when you don’t have much time but you’ve promised to bring over a sweet ending to a meal.
Through the ages we have transformed the macaroon from a delicate almond based biscuit to a moist coconut deliciousness. I love French macaroons, but the coconut ones should not be overlooked. They possess a satisfying simplicity.
