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


We have made these macaroons several times during Guide meetings.  The Guides like using electric beaters and other kitchen equipment.  So kitchen safety is done before they enter the kitchen and preparation area.


3-4 egg whites (at room temperature)

250g castor sugar

125g ground coconut (desiccated)

squeeze lemon juice or grated rind one orange

icing sugar


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