I've forgotten where I got this recipe. I copied the wrong link when I typed out the basic recipe into my MS word. And thank you Quinn for highlighting to me that these are not Macarons, but Macaroons. One "o" different but it made a hell of a difference, as Macarons are those round cute things like a sweet burger that Tartelette is famous for and macaroons are these.
I had some balance from my DDL cake and made this macaroons. They smell so lovely when fresh from the oven, smell like those CNY egg rolls (kuih kapit) and crunchy. But one thing, they soften and gets really chewy quite easily when exposed to the air, so please store them into an air tight container.
If they do soften, just reheat them in the oven :)
I found that the egg white content was a bit too little. All went deflated when I folded in with the coconut. Maybe you would like another egg white to it.
And another DDL cake that neighbour Maria ordered..... remember I said that she did after tasting my 1st DDL cake???
