Don’t throw away those egg whites!

April 15, 2011

Since the lemon mousse calls for 5 egg yolks you’re left with 5 egg whites to deal with. In the past they’ve gone into my refrigerator as I made a mental note to find something good to make with them. More often than not, when I clean out the fridge I find them in a corner and all that’s left to do is throw them out.

This time, I decided to use them right away.  I made coconut macaroons. That was the right decision! They’re delicious, and really easy to make. It is a perfect combination with the lemon mousse.

Coconut Macaroons                                                   These are excellent!
Baked Macaroons

5 medium egg whites (1/2 cup) at room temperature
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups coconut (I used unsweetened that I bought at the health food store)

Preheat oven to 325°F.

• Egg whites need to be at room temperature.
• Beat egg whites until stiff, gradually adding 1/4 cup sugar and vanilla
• In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt and 1 cup sugar. Add coconut and mix until well combined. Gently fold into the egg whites, a little at a time, until well incorporated.

Bowl of Macaroon Batter

The coconut makes the batter lumpy

• Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking sheet.
• Scoop out rounded teaspoons onto the parchment keeping the mounds taller rather then wide so they stay moist.

• Bake them in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. The tops will start to get brown. Don’t over cook or they will dry out.
• Remove from oven and let cool for 2 minutes before using a spatula to lift them off the pan.

Baked cookie

• Store the cool macaroons in a cookie tin. They are very moist so I like serving them within a day or two. They will dry out the longer you keep them. They are still great just a little firmer. See how you prefer them. You may have to put one aside since they disappear quickly.
