Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 egg white

Directions

Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff then gradually add the sugar, whisking continuously until thick and glossy. Sift in the flour, then fold into the egg whites with the coconut until completely combined.
Using an 8cm pastry cutter, squash spoonfuls of the mixture onto a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper or silicone plastic sheets - you may need to do this in two batches. Bake for 15-18 mins until golden around the edges and just starting to brown on top. Leave to cool, then transfer to a rack.
While the macaroons are cooling, melt the chocolate in a microwave or over a pan of hot water and leave to cool slightly. Cover the smooth side with chocolate and leave to set in the fridge. The macaroons will keep in an airtight container for 2 days.

    Very good!! I used flaked sweetened flaked coconut as opposed to fresh, I probably could have cut down on the sugar, but didn't think about it until afterward. Mixture was very crumbly and I had to form the macaroons by hand, squishing them to hold them together. But they turned out well!! YUM!! - 4/8/07
