Recipe - Easy Coconut Macaroons

At BFTF's workplace, just as in workplaces across the country, people occasionally bring in home made biscuits and cakes to share, often on birthdays etc.

Recently, at BFTF's workplace, someone bought in some Coconut Macaroons.

They were delicious. But it was not until BFTF enquired about the recipe that they true USP became clear.

The Macaroons contained just TWO ingredients. Wow!

So, dear reader, read on to see how to make the easiest, and quite possibly best tasting biscuits on the planet.

BFTF is genuinely not sure it gets any better than this, baking wise.

Seriously Easy Coconut Macaroons
Delicious Coconut Macaroons, so easy to make, so easy to eat!

400g (i.e. one can) Sweetened Condensed Milk
200g Desiccated Coconut

a) Preheat an oven to 180C
b) Mix the desiccated coconut into the condensed milk in a bowl.
c) Place a sheet of greaseproof paper on a flat baking tray
d) Place heaped teaspoon sized dollops of the mixture on the tray, leaving a little room between each one for the mix to spread slighly during baking.
e) Place in the oven and cook for 11-15minutes
f) Serve.

As a slight aside, below are two pictures of some macaroons made to this recipe by BFTF's niece (admittedly with the addition of a glace cherry on the topof each one). But there is some disagreement over which picture shows them to their best advantage. It would be great if you could leave a comment saying which picture you think looks nicer !

Do the Macaroons look better here in Picture 1. . . .

...Or here in Picture 2?

The dish rates as "EASY" on the BFTF Washing Up Index

  1. Good Lord! I would have to say that picture 2 looks the best but either way I'm drooling.
