I was looking for macaron recipes... my first try was the Pierre Hermé's macarons, delicious but their shape was not perfect ! I still have to work on them :)
In Christophe Felder's "Exquises pâtisseries pour les fêtes"
He proposes these coconut macarons.
Preparation Really quick and easy, in 20 minutes top they are out of the oven, already cooling down to be eaten !
Tasting So good ! You can fill them like usual macarons with a custard, but they are also delicious by themselves. Moisty, and chewy and coconutty :)
To conclude My mum and I loved them, they were all eaten in on evening !
For 3 dozen of macarons
You will need :
7.8 oz (220gr) shredded sweetened coconut
1/2 cup white sugar (3.5oz/100gr)
1/2tsp baking powder
1/2 cup vegetable oil (3.4fl.oz./10cL)
5tbsp powdered sugar
+ cooking spray
Preheat the oven at 360°F
In a bowl, stirr all ingredients but powdered sugar,
Mix 1 or 2 minute until a bit foamy
Use a cooking spray on your cooking tray or use a parchment paper to cover it
Pour powdered sugar in a bowl and drop a small golfball-size of dough in it,
roll it in sugar until covered.
\\ Use a spoon to drop it in it, the batter is too moisty to handle by hand //
Make a ball by hand, reroll in the powdered sugar and place it on your cooking tray.
Place each macaron 2 inch apart
Bake 12 minutes to 15 minutes until golden and cracked.
Cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes before tasting
These macarons are better when fresh, the day they are made
If you're less than 5 to eat them, divide all proportions by 2 !
