Easy Coconut Macaroons and awards

Thursday, February 5, 2009

While making Coconut Macaroons yesterday, I was thinking about my Dad.After a good meal,he would go to the kitchen and ask my Mom “ Wats there to eat”? He actually meant something to munch or savories. We call it “Norukuthini” in Tamil.I wud ask “ Wats there to Norukufy”? (jes a modernized way of calling it).Mom used to get wild at times as we would have jes finished our dinner.My Bro and me wud end up laughing:).The funniest part are the things that he would enjoy eating – If he din’t find anything like a Muruku,Mixture or cookies, he would scrape li’l coconut and eat it with sugar,Toasted Peanuts/Cashewnuts/Pistachios or even as simple as milk powder. Things haven’t changed even now!

Similarly,once P gets back from work he looks around in the kitchen to “norukufy” something:-P.I try and make different stuff for him and this was the easiest I could think of making yesterday.


Shredded coconut – 2 ¾ cup (I used sweetened coconut)
Sweetened condensed Milk – ¾ cup
Vanilla extract/essence – 1 tsp
Salt – a pinch

Method :

1.Mix all the ingredients together
2.Use an Ice cream scoop or spoon to drop the mixture onto a greased baking sheet and bake at 325F (preheated)for about 15 min or until golden brown. Cool it before munching:-D

Prep Time – 5 mins apart from the baking time.
Serving - Makes around 25-30 small Macaroons.

I also used Hershey's Chocolate syrup on top of the macaroons.P doesn’t prefer this much,so jes made a few for myself.Few even add eggs to the recipe.Let me know if anyone has tried that.

Varsha of Will–O'-the–Wisp has passed on this award.This is my second one,feels so good!

Also, Mahimaa of the Indian Vegetarian Kitchen has passed on the above mentioned award.Thanks Mahimaa!
And I would like to pass on both these awards to Ramya of Maneadige,Mangala of Recipes24x7,Vidhas of Appetizing recipe,Trupti of Trupti's Food Corner,Nags of Edible Garden,Varsha of Will-O'-the-wisp,Hema of Adlak's Kitchen,Asha,Harini of Sunshinemom and Lubna of Yummy Food.

This goes to the “Just for you” event organized by Alka of Sindhirasoi.

Last but not the least,this is also off to Varsha of Will-O'-the-Wisp event Recipe for the rest of us - Dessert originally started by Ramki of One Page Cookbooks.
