THE BEST COCONUT MACAROONS EVER!
I have lost my macaroon recipe and was trying to find a new one on the web. However, there was not one that seemed to me was the "correct" recipe so I have composed my own recipe from memory. Most recipes did not use egg whites and instead added flour which made no sense to me since they are not cookies... I must say that MY recipe is absolutely delicious and the best macaroon recipe out there :)

- Before starting to create the mix, I would suggest (i.e. It is optional) to take an empty bowl (metal would be the best) and a wire whisk (or whisk attachment for an electric whisk) and put them in the freezer for about an hour.
- Take your kitchen utensils out of the freezer and drop the two egg whites into the bowl. If you have an electric whisk set it on high and and whisk the eggs until they form medium peaks.
- In another bowl mix the coconut, condensed milk and vanilla extract. Transfer the egg whites from the other bowl into the coconut mixture by folding the egg whites into it.
- Get some baking pans and line them with wax paper. Drop the mixture onto the sheet. The amount of each dropping should be about an ice cream scoop or about two tablespoons.
- At one point you should have set your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit... Once your oven is heated up put your pans in the oven and bake the macaroons for about 25 to 30 minutes (or just look at them and wait until they are golden brown (not dark tarnished gold brown but shiny gold brown)). When removing the macaroons the wax paper may get a little stuck to it because they are so sticky... The best way to try to avoid this is removing them while hey are hot.
- Optional Steps Follow.
- After the macaroons have cooled you can dip them in chocolate if you would like. To do so put a bunch of chocolate chips (whichever chocolate you prefer, I prefer milk chocolate) and put them into a microwave safe bowl and put the bowl into the microwave until the chocolate chips have melted and stir.
- Take one macaroon at a time and dip them in chocolate as much as you like. Put the macaroons on a plate (I would suggest having refrigerated the plate first) and put them in the fridge for about an hour or two and you will have delicious chocolate covered macaroons :).
If you are a coconut lover, you'll want to make these moist, chewy macaroons all the time. Crisp on the outside and pillowy within, they take only a few minutes to put together and keep extremely well. Their perfect texture comes from fluffy sweetened coconut for softness and crunchier unsweetened coconut for more chewiness. Coconut flour, ubiquitous now because of gluten-free baking, is very absorbent and works beautifully to absorb the extra liquid that would otherwise run out of the macaroon, but matzo cake meal can be used during Passover and all-purpose flour any other time of year. Just double check that whatever you use is kosher for Passover.

- Position racks in the top and bottom of the oven and heat oven to 325 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, whisk egg whites, salt and sugar until creamy, thick and white. Whisk in 1 tablespoon of the oil and the vanilla.
- Fold in the flaked and shredded coconut and the flour, mixing well so the coconut is evenly moistened. At this point, the macaroons can be baked, but you can also refrigerate the mixture in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
- Use a small 1-ounce cookie scoop to portion the coconut mixture (about 2 tablespoons per macaroon) and squeeze together in a ball. Space a few inches apart on the prepared sheets and rough up the texture a little with your fingers.
- Bake, switching the pans from back to front and top to bottom, until golden on the bottom and toasty all over, 16 to 21 minutes. Let cool on baking sheets for a few minutes, then transfer the macaroons to a cooling rack close together. Set the rack over one of the baking sheets (keep the parchment on) to catch chocolate drips during drizzling. Cool the macaroons completely.
- Melt the chocolate with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon oil in a small saucepan over low heat and stir well. Drizzle the macaroons with the chocolate. Let the chocolate set a little in a cool place or in the refrigerator before topping with flaky salt. The macaroons can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week or frozen for up to 1 month.

- Whisk together the egg whites and caster sugar in a large bowl for 2-3 mins until light and frothy, and the sugar has dissolved. Add the coconut, a pinch of salt and the vanilla, then stir until combined. Leave to stand for 10 mins.
- Heat the oven to 170C/150C fan/gas 3½. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment. Scoop teaspoonfuls of the mixture and roll into compact balls, then arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 mins until golden.
- Leave on the baking sheet to cool completely. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn't touch the water, or in short 20-second bursts in the microwave. Tip the melted chocolate into a small bowl, then dip the bottom of each cooled macaroon into the chocolate and wipe off any excess. Arrange on a sheet of baking parchment, chocolate-side up, then put in the fridge for 20 mins, or until set. You can use any remaining melted chocolate to pipe in zigzags over the top, if you like, then leave to set.
