Simple Vanilla Macaroons Recipe

By admin |

 

I love macaroons. Love them! Hail Mary makes some amazing Vanilla Macaroons that I wanted to try to recreate on my own.  Just a warning, these are addictive…majorly, majorly addictive! These are very easy to make and pair excellent with some hot chocolate or tea. I hope you enjoy! These are pretty amazing!

1. First put 2.5 cups shredded coconut into a high speed blender and blend into a paste/butter. I used a VitaMix (a.k.a. best blender on the planet!).

2. Next, add your coconut butter mixture with all the other ingredients in a large bowl until you've created a large sticky "ball". Be sure to taste as you go to make sure you have the desired sweetness.

3. Using the palm of your hands, roll the mixture into small balls and place onto a baking sheet. I always use a SilPat to make sure I get a nice crispy outer layer.

4. Cook on the middle rack of the oven at 350 degrees for about 5-10mins. Just keep checking to make sure your macaroons don't get too brown, the cooking time will vary based on the size of your macaroons.
