Dulce De Leche Coconut Macaroons

Saturday, May 29, 2010

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 :)

30gm egg white (1 egg white)
Pinch of cream of tartar
100gm dulce de leche
½ tsp vanilla extract
200gm angel flakes /sweetened coconut flakes

1. Preheat oven to 160/180C. Line baking sheets with either silicone liners or non stick baking paper.
2. Mix the coconut flakes with dulce de leche and vanilla.
3. Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff. Gently fold them in to the coconut mixture.
4. Place heaped teaspoonsful of coconut mixture onto baking sheet.
5. Bake for 15 minutes or until sides of macarons are brown and crisp.
6. Let cool for 10 minutes. (I do this in the oven, door ajar, so that the heat of the oven will further dry it up. And I did it for 30 minutes)

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???

They look yummy. Just in case you don't knwo and just to share. These are called Macaroons and is indeed different from Macarons. Macarons looks like this .I am absolutely in love with the last photo, your frosting skill is awesome!

I can imagine the sweet nutty smell that comes out of the oven when you bake these. What a great idea in replacing the condensed milk with DDL. I am sure my husband is going to love these. Thanks Wendy for the idea.

may know what is angle flake? just norma corn flake or ..............

As said in the recipe angel flakes is the glamourous name for "sweetened coconut flakes".

It's a lot more expensive than dessicated coconut. You can buy this in bakery supplies stores. Supermarkets won't carry this unless you go to places like Jaya Grocer or Village Grocer, but.. it cost double or triple at these places because they sell it "branded" and not generic, and yesterday I saw them at about RM16-20 per small pack (like choc chips packing). Bakery supplies store will sell these a lot lot cheaper.
