Coconut Macaroons

Coconut macaroons are really easy to make. A hand mixer will save you from being “whisk exhausted”, a terrible malady suffered by many French chefs before the invention of the electric whirring goodness. You can use any spoon in your measuring set to dole these out but I’m a fan of the tablespoon. Scoop a heap of the mix, round it with your free hand and voila! You’ll only get about 8 that way but it makes for a smart-sized toasty bite and less leftovers to call your name for a midnight snack.
