Macaroons are simmilar to cookies, they are easy to make, by the time the oven pre heats, the batter is ready to be baked, its that easy. Here is an egg version, but we can make it without eggs too, using condensed milk and taking care of the sugar levels. The egg whites / condensed milk is just used for binding.

2 and 1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut (625 gms)
2 tsp sugar
2 large egg whites / 2 tbsp condensed milk (just enough to bind)
1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup dry cranberry
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt


  1. Pre heat oven to 350 degree F (180C).
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. Mix Well with hands till everything is combined well.
  4. Drop 1 tbsp of mixture on the ready baking sheet, about 1 inch apart.
  5. Dampen hands with cold water and form a pyramid with the dropped mixture.
  6. Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Rotating the pan in between.
  7. Transfer the parchment paper to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Store in air tight container. Can be kept upto 3 days.

->You can also use unsweetened sgredded coconut, juts use 3/4 cup sugar instead.

->If using condensed Milk then reduce the sugar levels since the condensed milk is sweet.

Looks SO yummy! A silly question though. When you say, turning in between (in step 6) is it turning upside down or rotating it?

Hi Medha,
Considering that i live in a comparatively remote region in otherwise developed Mumbai,Macaroons are sumthng new to me...Maybe its not at all avlbl here or maybe its called by some other name..but they do look tempting .Though i neither have a sweet tooth nor do i m fascinated by baked sweets,but two ppl around me in our house(hubby and son)just go gaga over this.Hope i can try these out for both of them,coz i m sure they will love it.
