I know, it is only october but today is a bank holiday in Germany and we started the day lazy on the couch. Around 3, after the second lazy sunday movie, my boyfriend had a craving for christmas cookies. If supermarkets start to sell christmas stuff in early septermber, why not bake my first own christmas cookies in october?! So I went into the kitchen to see which ingredients I had at hand. After another quick look in my recipe collection I decided to make my grandma’s coconut macaroons.
It is a very simple and quick recipe but soooo delicous!
175-200 g sugar
1 Tablespoon honey
250 g grated coconut
Beat the eggs and the sugar together to a thick and solid cream. This takes around 5-10 minutes. Whisk in the honey and gradually add the grated coconut until it reaches a doughy consistency, but not too soft.
Preheat the oven to 150° C/ 300° F and line two baking trays with parchment paper. Take two teaspoons and spoon the dough onto the parchment paper. My grandma used to put the dough on wafers but I don’t like wafers myself so I do it without them.
Bake them for 15-20 minutes and enjoy already hot from tray 😉
