A superfluity of egg whites in my freezer led me to coconut macaroons. Not to be confused with the annoyingly pretty French macaron. I cannot be doing with anything that has to be perfect. I want simple and tasty.
I used this recipe and tripled it -I had a lot of egg whites. I found they needed an extra 10 minutes in the oven but this may have been because I made them pretty big (about the diameter of a digestive).
Moist and delicious with chewy edges. Definitely one for my recipe box.
By the way I feel macaroon must be said with a Scottish accent if that's ok with Scots. We're all macarooooned.
Comment box news
Yes, I have been messing about with the comment box again. It seems that Blogger's word verification has recently become much easier to decipher.
Currently you are presented with a two words one of which is an actual word and very easy to read, the other is a wobbly nonsense word but its individual letters are fairly easy to identify.
I have therefore decided to enable word verification on my blog and to open comments to anonymous commenters again.
I will see how it goes for a few weeks and whether any spam gets through before making a final decision.
To whoever leaves genuine comments -thank you! I appreciate them all. Truly.
