There are some days when you just feel like munching into a macaroon.

4 egg whites
2/3 c caster sugar
3 c desiccated coconut (fine or shredded)

Whisk whites for 1 min, add sugar and whisk another 6-8 mins till peaks form. Fold in coconut. Spoon on lined baking tray. Bake at 125C for half hour then at 80C for 1 and a half hours. Mama Chan likes her macaroons crispy. If you like them chewy on the inside, bake for less. Makes 20.
Half dip in chocolate for the decadent touch.

If you're wondering what Mama Chan does with the egg yolks, she often makes coffee ice cream. THE creamiest coffee ice cream I have ever devoured.
