Orange and honey macaroons recipe
Make a batch of these orange and honey macaroons and they'll disappear quick smart. They are fuss-free, easy to make and can mostly be made by the kids.
- 3 egg whites
- 1/3 cup (80g) caster sugar
- finely grated zest of one orange
- 2 cups (170g) desiccated coconut
- 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
- 3 tbsp runny honey
Preheat oven to 150°C (130°C fan-forced) and line two baking trays with paper. Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan and then place over medium heat. Stir well and keep stirring until the mixture begins to dry out. This will take about 10 minutes.
Reduce the heat a little if you think the mixture is beginning to catch and burn on the bottom of the saucepan. Remove from heat, leave to cool and then spoon into tablespoon-sized mounds on baking trays.
Bake for 10 minutes or until golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on the baking paper for about 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
- Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
- This is a great recipe to double or triple if you happen to be baking for a school fete or cake drive. Package them up in little cellophane bags and a ribbon and you have a sure-seller on your hands!
