I love this recipe. Coconut Macaroons is an all time Filipino favorite. A perfect mix of dessicated coconut, butter, eggs, milk and sugar, it gives a great tasting flavor and aroma that no one could hardly resist.
Among any other Filipino quick snack recipes like palitaw, polvoron, maja blanca, or suman, coconut macaroons is another fabulous dessert which is very easy to prepare. A must have during special occasions, this food is just right to satisfy sweet, chewy, delectable cravings the way we like it.
What you will need:
½ cup butter
¾ cup white sugar
200g. dessicated coconut
1 can condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla
small paper baking cups
How to prepare:
Preheat oven at 350 degrees F. Place paper baking cups on a baking sheet.
Cream butter until light and fluffy. Then add sugar and egg yolks until smooth. Mix in milk, dessicated coconut and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until fluffy. Add sugar and continue beating until stiff. Mix in the egg yolk mixture.
Drop by teaspoonful into the paper cups and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
(Tips: use colored paper cups - great gift ideas too!)
