Lime Macaroon Recipe



Lime Macaroon Recipe

I took these lime and coconut air-fryer macaroons to our annual cookie exchange, where we name a queen. I won the crown.
Ingredients :
4 large egg whites
2/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons gin
1-1/2 teaspoons grated lime zest
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 package (14 ounces) sweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
8 ounces white baking chocolate, melted

Preheat air fryer to 350°. Whisk the first 6 ingredients until blended. In another bowl, toss coconut with flour; stir in egg white mixture.
In batches, place 1 in. apart on greased tray in air-fryer basket. Cook until browned, 4-5 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.
Dip bottoms of macaroons into melted chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Store in an airtight container.

Test Kitchen tip :
If you don’t have an air fryer, you can make this recipe in an oven.
These are also great dipped in melted dark chocolate!
