Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

Macroons


Quick, easy and simple. Allows the Guides to experiment with another setting on another house hold appliance – the electric mixer. However there are safety rules to follow and these rules are run through every time the mixer is used. The Guides found waiting for the eggs to stiffen is worth the wait.

3-4 egg whites (at room temperature)
250g castor sugar
125g ground coconut (desiccated)
squeeze lemon juice or grated rind one orange
icing sugar

Method:
Whip egg whites stiffly.
Add sugar slowly until all absorbed.
Add desiccated coconut and lemon juice or orange rind.
Drop a teaspoonful at a time on to grease proof paper or rice paper sprinkled with sugar.
Even piping with forcing bag with a plain or star nozzle.
Dust with sifted icing sugar to make tops crack.
Bake in a slow oven 160°C for 30-40 minutes.
Cool on a cake rack.
