Original Macaroons Recipe
This original macaroons recipe is easy to prepare. Macaroons are called Kokosmakronen in Germany.
Ingredients for Original Macaroons Recipe:
- 4 egg whites
- ½ teaspoons of cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract
- 200 g (7 oz) of sugar
- 250 g (9 oz) of unsweetened fancy coconut flakes
- 85 g (3 oz) of unsweetened chocolate (optional)
Use your electric hand mixer to beat the egg whites until they are very stiff. Slowly add sugar, almond extract, and cinnamon. Use your whisk to fold in the coconut flakes. Stir gently so that the batter stays fluffy. Use two teaspoons to place small clumps of the mixture on a baking sheet covered with baking paper.
Place the macaroons in a preheated oven on the fourth rack from bottom and bake them for about 20-22 minutes at 150°C (300°F). Let them cool down on the baking sheet and then carefully place on a cooling rack.
Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie (water bath) and brush the bottom of the cookies with it. Make sure that they have had time to fully dry on the outside (so that they won’t stick to each other) before storing them in a tin box. They taste also very good without chocolate. Store the macaroons in a tin box.
