"Kokosmakronen" are very typical German Christmas cookies.
The recipe is not the easiest, but the Kokosmakronen are really yummy!
If you don't have the mentioned wafers, you could spoon the dough directly on baking paper, but it might be tricky to remove the cookies later, because they might stick to it.
Ingredients for 30 cookies:
* 120 g coconut flakes
* 250 g sugar
* 4 egg whites
* 30 g flour
* baking wafers (4 cm in diameter)
* chocolate frosting for decoration (optional)
Prepare a water bath. The water should cook lightly.
Mix egg whites and sugar in a bowl. Place the bowl in the hot water bath and mix to dissolve the sugar. Add coconut flakes and mix. Heat the coconut mixture to a temperature of 70° C (use a cooking thermometer to control temperature) stirring frequently.
Remove from water bath, add flour and mix again. Let cool down to room temperature.
Preheat oven to 160°C and place the baking wafers on the baking tray: Use an icing bag with large opening to place little dough dollops on the wafers. Leave a little rim, because while baking the cookies will flatten a bit. Or use a table spoon to form the dollops.
Bake for 10 minutes. Then open the oven a little and bake for another 5 minutes. The cookies should remain light in color and just a bit browned.
If you like you can decorate the Kokosmakronen with chocolate icing.
