Chewy coconut macaroons are good to have for dessert. It is delicious and guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth. The most important thing about this recipe that I like most is its ease of preparation. It is also quick to make.
I started by beating the egg. This recipe only calls for a piece egg. The condensed milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract were added afterwards and then whisked until well blended. I only used 7 ounces of condensed milk. This is equivalent to half a can. If you are wondering what to do with the remaining condensed milk that won’t get used, I suggest that you make some pastillas de leche; just make half the amount that the recipe suggests.
Once the mixture is ready, I added the desiccated coconut and salt and then folded the mixture using a silicon spatula until all the ingredients are distributed evenly. DsThe process takes less than 10 minutes. Make sure that your oven has been preheated before you start.
Desiccated coconut pertains to shredded (or grated) coconut meat that has been dehydrated. This are commonly used in baking and are available in many forms. We need sweetened shredded desiccated coconut for this recipe. If the sweetened variety is not available, you can still make coconut macaroons by adding 2 tablespoons of either white or brown sugar.
