White Chocolate Macaroons

I made up these macaroons after I had someone die on me at work.
I was too upset to sleep, so I stayed up and baked.
These are really, really easy and
really, really good.
When I took them to work they disappeared in less than 5 mins.
I love macaroons and these are the first homemade ones I have found that are soft, chewy and full of coconut flavor.

White Chocolate Macaroons
2 large/jumbo eggs OR 4 small/banty eggs
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
12 oz bag of white chocolate chips
14 oz bag of shredded coconut
Whip eggs in an electric mixer for 5 minutes, then add 1/4 tsp cream of tartar. Whip for another 5 mins. until the eggs are frothy.
Then mix in 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk.
Next mix in the coconut and chocolate chips.
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Now this is the fun part!
To get the eggs to bind to the coconut you need to press the batter together...
So take walnut sized portions of batter and with wet hands press the mixture to form a ball.
Place ball onto a greased/parchment/silpat covered baking sheet.
Repeat with the rest of the batter.
Bake for 10-15 mins until the macaroons are toasted golden brown.
If you cook them for too long - don't worry - they are still soft and delicious.


  1. Your macs look really good and congrats on the foodie blogroll!

  2. those look fantastic and very yummy. It's almost 1 a.m. and I am just baking some sugar cookies :)

  3. Hi Catalina - The same here with Kumara - coming from Scotland I had never heard of them until we got to NZ. At firts I thought they were like the sweet potatoes I was used to but the ones here are more floury.

    I should grow some . . .


  4. Forget the coconut pie hubby was asking for.. I am going to try my hand at these yummy treats. The recipes you post always looks so darn good, inspiring me to try something new. I was planning for today's project to be tackling the apple trees and exploring apple butter options.... Laurie (BYC)
