My Cream Coconut Almost Macaroons

Finely grated creamy coconut gives these soft-center Ed cookies a rich creaminess. Cooking the gooey mixture on baking parchment makes sure that the cookies are easily removed from baking sheet. For a tangy flavour, add the grated rind of one lime to the mixture in. The cooked macaroons can be stored in an airtight container for up to one week.


50g/2oz creamed coconut, chilled

2 vegan eggs
