Make these with a mini ice cream scoop for a
bite-sized gluten-free treat.
2 cups finely shredded coconut
1/2 cup sugar
2 egg whites
1/4 tsp rum or rum extract
4 tbsps chopped candied pineapple (plus more to garnish)
1/4 tsp lime zest
Whip the sugar and egg whites together then mix in the coconut.
If you want plain old macaroons stop here. But if you're going for the pina colada ones add the rest of the ingredients.
Use a small ice cream scoop and mound it onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.
We made half the recipe plain and half pina colada. Place a couple pieces of candied pineapple on top of the pina colada ones. Here's a shot of the plain ones.
Bake at 325 F for 15-17 mins.
And here are the pina colada ones.
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
