Coconut Lime Macaroons with White Chocolate

Servings 18 macaroons

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1 large egg white
  • teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • cups sweetened coconut
  • 10 ounces white chocolate chopped

Instructions

  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. 2. In a large bowl, stir together the sweetened condensed milk, lime juice, lime zest, egg white, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir until combined. Add in the coconut and mix well.
  3. 3. With a spoon, scoop up about 2 Tablespoons of the coconut mixture and form into mounds that have a slight peak at the top. Place on lined baking sheets, about two inches apart. Bake cookies one sheet at a time for 15 to 20 minutes, or until cookies are set and slightly golden brown.
  4. 4. Cool the cookies on the baking sheets for about 5 minutes. Remove with a spatula onto a cooling rack.
  5. 5. Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Make sure you keep stirring the chocolate every 20 seconds or so until chocolate is melted and smooth.
  6. 6. Lay out a large piece of wax paper. Dip the cookies into the chocolate-just so the bottoms are covered in chocolate. Set dipped cookies on the paper to dry. Drizzle macaroons with white chocolate and let dry completely.
