Equipment

  • a melon baller
  • electronic kitchen scale
  • non-stick baking tray
  • silicone spatula
  • stainless steel mixing bowl

Ingredients
  

A - sift

  • 0.025 kg corn starch
  • 0.045 kg coconut sugar
  • 0.002 kg ground ginger
  • 0.001 kg salt

B - add

  • 0.100 kg coconut desiccated
  • 0.200 kg coconut milk

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Coconut mix

  • Group A - sift together. Stir in the desiccated coconut from Group B, then add the coconut milk to make the mix.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic and refrigerate for 15 minutes before shaping. This allows the coconut to absorb the liquid and become more pliable.

Shaping

  • Scoop the coconut mix using a 3cm melon baller. Dab the half spheres onto the tray.
  • Bake the macaroons for 8 minutes. Allow to cool.

Notes

Variation:
Chocolate - melt 50g dark chocolate. Spoon a dollop on the base of a macaroon and sandwich with a second macaroon. Allow to set on parchment paper.
