Lovers of brownies and cookies mostly know about all of their types such as biscottis, brownies, chocolate chip cookies, double fudge cookies, madeleines, oatmeal raisin cookies, sugar cookies, and macaroons. Among all of these, macaroons look a bit different, and I love them because I’m a coconut lover. Do you know how to make them? No? Please read this crispy and chewy macaroon recipe for coconut lovers.

What’s the Difference Between a Coconut Macaroon and a Macaron?

Don’t mistake macarons for macaroons because both are different. A macaroon represents a drop cookie. It is mainly prepared with coconut powder or shredded coconuts, sugar, egg whites, vanilla extracts, or other flavorings. Sometimes, ground almonds are also used.

There can also be vegan or eggless macaroons like the ones we have prepared here. Milk, milk powder, or even sweetened condensed milk are used in macaroons too. The macaroon recipe we’ve shared here also contains milk and milk powder. Macaroons don’t look like traditional cookies, they resemble coconut mounds.

Macaroons are different because of their cracky coconut exterior, dense texture, and irregular shape. Macaroons can vary from region to region. They can have various flavors like ginger, cinnamon, vibrant lemon, vanilla, strawberry, chocolate, and the like. They are dipped or soaked in chocolate but the basic recipes consist of only a few elements or ingredients and depend only on coconut for flavor and sugar.

Macarons are sandwich cookies, mainly meringue-based. They are prepared with egg whites, almond flour, food coloring, and confectioners’ sugar. Common fillings consist of ganache, buttercream, and any type of fruit jam. The meringues come with ruffled edges known as the foot, crown, or pied, flat bottoms, and flat tops.

Macaron’s texture is airy, slightly cakey, a little chewy, and moist. Exactly baked macarons need to have a differentiating mouth-melting quality. General types include chocolate, lemon, raspberry, and vanilla. But virtually, macarons can be of any color and flavor.
