melt in your mouth hemp macaroons

There is a symbiosis that occurs when making macaroons… they want to be paired with the making of an egg yoke recipe; like hollandaise sauce or egg noodles. The same day I made these I made lovely squash stuffed raviolis and cannelloni with home-made egg noodles and knew that those pasta dough egg whites were destine for great things.

These macaroons are a fail proof recipe that creates  fluffy sticky toasty pillows of coconutty hemp goodness, with just a few easy ingredients:

essential cookie element 3: cookies should be quick and easy, not fussy. Something you can throw together on a whim.

In a stand mixer whip:

the whites of 6 eggs just beyond soft peaks… on the threshold of stiff but certainly not hard peaks.

In a large bowl combine:

1 cup organic cane sugar

2 cups organic fancy shred coconut

1 cup organic hemp hearts

along with a pinch of sea salt and a splash of vanilla

gentally fold  egg white peaks into bowl of coconut, until combined.

Portion cookies on to a lined baking sheet and bake at 350 for 12 minutes.

They are ready when golden brown along the edges and have some highlights of golden bits of top.

thats it.. so very easy so very good.
