Coconut Macaroons German Style Recipe
Kokosmakronen, the German style macaroon. These are more of a meringue cookie. A must for the Holidays.
When you have a hankering for a quick and easy dessert you can make using cheap pantry staples, there's nothing quite like delicious coconut macaroons.
This recipe was PERFECT. Everyone who tried them was overly impressed with how soft and chewy they turned out. I dipped them in melted chocolate and sprinkled with some coconut flakes. Beautiful presentation, moist and flavorful... I can't ask for a more perfect coconut macaroon recipe =o).
These chocolate-dipped macaroons (Lübecker Kokosmakronen) originate from the German city of Lübeck, famous for its marzipan.
This recipe is excellent as is. Baking it at 350 for less time until golden resulted in sticky cookies that really couldn't be eaten while keeping your fingers clean. I put them in for 12 more minutes on 250, and they turned out great. Macaroons are supposed to be crunchy, anyways. The almond extract adds an excellent flavor, and the cinnamon doesn't distract from the coconut taste at all. Highly recommended.
I was first scared to be the first one tried this recipe, but let me tell you it is so good, I did not toast the coconut as the recipe says, and did not add the cinnamon, so good,thanks
Rich coconut macaroons get a salted caramel twist in this easy thumbprint cookie recipe that's great for parties.
These coconut macaroons are dipped in chocolate and taste like they came from the bakery.
