It's my sister-in-law's birthday today and because my brother's family loves eating leche flan and macaroons I've decided to cook hundreds for them, hundreds of macaroons not the leche flan of course.
This time preparation is not that tasking as my daughter Ruth helped me with mixing and arranging paper cups on the trays.
Here's our mixture:
2 cups dessicated coconut
1 big can of condensed milk
2 medium eggs
2 Tbsp. shortening (vegetable oil will do)
2 drops of vanilla
sugar to taste
Here's how we mixed it:
Beat eggs on a big bowl, pour dessicated coconut on it and slowly mix condensed milk. After the three has mixed up evenly put some drops of vanilla and add oil. If you feel it lacks sweetness add sugar.
Here's how we cooked it:
Preheat oven to medium heat only. Place paper cups on rectangular trays and drop little macaroons mixture on it. Cooked for about 20 minutes, see if the white color turns light brown. Some mixture takes longer to cook but it's easier if you watched it carefully, I'm sure you don't want burnt macaroons. Here's how it looks on the oven!
