Macaroons

"Macaroons" is one of my favorite filipino food. It is usually served as snacks or dessert. It is made of coconut and sweetened to satisfy one's sweet tooth. Macaroons are normally small in sizes but Wrapshell, a friend, used bigger paper containers for her macaroons. Below is her recipe.

1 200 g. pack of dessicated coconut
1 250 ml. pack of sweetened condensed milk
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 c. of butter, softened
1 c. of light brown sugar
1/2 tsp. of lemon or dayap rind or a few drops of lemon extract (optional)
100 pieces of paper cup (1″ in diameter at the base

Cooking procedure :
In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs. Add the rest of the ingredients and beat until well-blended. Arrange the paper cups on a shallow baking tray (a brownie tray would be good). Fill each paper cup with the coconut batter until 3/4 full. Bake in a 350oF oven for 30 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.
