macaroons are one of the best things to make in hurry and without too much mess (especially if you skip the chocolate decoration!) it takes 3 minutes to make the batter, with simplest ingredients that are usually waiting in some secret cupboard at home. i often make them when some guests announce themselves half an hour before arriving and there is not enough time for anything else, save tart made with ready-made puff pastry. but that is harder to find, at least in my small town, than a bag of coconut flakes. and much, much cheaper.
and of course – it is yet another great idea to use all the spare egg whites.
the macaroons can be stored in an air tight container up to two weeks, but the sooner they are consumed the better!
