Coconut Macaroons with Plum filling

Hi friends,

 Homewarming has moved to new home here.



Yaseen was scheduled for hepatitis-A immunization today. He didn’t want to enter the clinic. We felt the tension when he met the doctor. He now understood that she would always inject the medicine most of the visits. He cried, but it was ok once he saw the big red lollipop.

So today for his courage we made him the coconut macaroons with plum filling. Coconut has always been his favourite ingredient. And we just got the big case of fresh plum. This is the best console recipe we always love. The sweet & sour plum jam filling worked with coconut macaroons wonderfully.

For macaroon:
2 cups desiccated coconut
1/3 cup sugar
2 egg whites
A pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven at 325 degree F.

Yaseen enjoys seperate egg yolks.

Whisk together egg white, sugar, salt and vanilla for 10 minutes by hand or until the sugar dissolved.

Add desiccated coconut and mix well.

Grease the backing tray and scope about 2 tbsp of the mixture in each time. Make a well in the middle with spoon for the filling.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until cook and golden brown.
Plum Jam filling
500 gm plum- removed stone and cut into 8 pieces each plum
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Water

Mix everything in the medium sauce pan and bring to boil.
Simmer in the low heat for 15-20 minutes or until thicken.
Remove from the heat and cool down.

Fill each macaroon with some plum jam.

I know this recipe will make you happy, too.

    The plums on my tree are ripening now. What a great recipe to try! Thanks.

  4. London Eats says:

    These look nice – like British macaroons. I like the chewy, coconut taste. Plum jam is such a nice idea, a change from raspberry. It will be plum season here soon.

  5. Wonderful! Such beautiful colours, and so much love 🙂

    Those look beautiful! I’ve never made coconut macaroons before… I think I’ll try these!

  11. Jen W. says:

    These are such cute pictures! It’s a good time of year where I am for cookies with jam since fresh fruit is everywhere. And these look delicious! One question: does dessicated coconut mean sweetened coconut?

    1. Tes says:

      Dessicated coconut is dried coconut flakes. It can be sweeten or non-sweeten. In this recipe, I use non-sweeten one. If you had sweeten one, then you have to adjust sugar in the recipe. Thanks for stopping by.

    That looks so yummy Tes — I’ve been looking for a good macaroon recipe for ages. Thanks for the post and thanks for all your comments on alidoesit.

    Take care of that little man!

  16. Oh I am happy now seeing this post. I think it is so great that you are teaching and getting Yaseen involved in cooking.

  17. Loll says:

    I love Yaseen’s spiderman outfit Tes! And the coconut macaroons sound utterly delicious.

  18. thehungryscholar says:

    Love the costume. So Cute!

  19. thehungryscholar says:

    What cute pictures and delicious food!

  20. Jill says:

    What a fun blog to read. Your little boy loves to cook. Does he like to do laundry too? : ) My son when he was young used to like to make pancakes and put clothes in the washing machine. Thanks for sharing and also for visiting my blog a few days ago.

  21. lisasfoods says:

    Poor Yaseen. At least kids seem to recomver fairly quickly.

    Those macaroons look so good. I’ve only eaten store-bought ones, but I imagine that homemade would be excellent. I like that you topped them with jam too.

    1. Tes says:

      I will find that making macaroons at home is super easy and fun. I hope you try it.

  22. Nicole says:

    Yaseen is adorable!! He is quite the master in the kitchen at such a young age, wow!! 🙂 The macaroons look and sound wonderful!!

  23. he is tooooo cute!!
    thanks for your comment on my blog 😀

  24. kaztronomic says:

    This recipe does make me happy! I love coconut, and it’s so exciting to see a cookie recipe that I can actually eat. Thank you! 😀

  25. Caroline says:

    Poor Yaseen! I used to scream when I had to get shots! Macaroons look beautiful…I’m glad he at least got to enjoy his favorite snack (coconut, as you posted a few weeks ago). I love how you’re already teaching him how to separate eggs and be a great chef like his Momma!

    1. Tes says:

      Thanks for your sweet comment! He was really love playing with egg yolks…

  26. Tisha says:

    These look delish and super easy!

    1. Tes says:

      I’m glad you are back! Thanks for stopping by!

  27. Nikki says:

    I LOVE macaroons!!! They look great with that filling… And so easy that even the wee one can make them! So cute.. ❤
    What an interesting method to cook them on the pan instead of baking, I will have to try that. I usually make these in the oven.

    1. Tes says:

      This is baking recipe! I use the round baking tray, not a pan. Bake at 325 degree F for 15-20 minutes. I’m glad you love the recipe.

      1. Nikki says:

        Oops!! I missed that, it even says it in the post :-/

  28. leeswammes says:

    I very much enjoyed looking at the pictures and the recipe! What a cute little boy! It’s nice you can get him to help you. Maybe he can do the cooking when he’s older, so you can read a book. 🙂

    I’m very tempted to make this recipe. I guess any jam would be fine, but I’ll look out for plums. I don’t think they’re ready here, yet.

    1. Tes says:

      It is so fun cooking with him. I’m glad you love the recipe.

  29. Hi Tes! These look great and your son looks so cute helping out! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  30. incidentalcooksuman says: sweet…coconut macaroons looks so tempting…great treats for the little ones…lovely step by step pics…

  31. Do you need to peel the plums? I think I’m going to make these with my kids.

    1. Tes says:

      I think if you peel them, it will make the jam smoother. So if you like smoother texture jam, then try peeling them first before chopping. Taste your plum if it’s sourer then adjust sugar in the recipe. Let me know how it go!

  32. I love Yaseen’s little Spiderman outfit and the photo of him holding the egg yolk. This looks like an awesome treat for enduring a poke with a needle.
    These are great photos!
