Corn Flakes Macaroons

by on April 29, 2009 · 7 comments

I couldn’t make the Frosted Flakes Chocolate Chip Cookies mentioned earlier, but thanks to this recipe, I’ve finished off a giant box of regular Corn Flakes. Now I can get on with my life.

These were good – sweet, but good if you like macaroons.

Corn Flakes Macaroons

4 large egg whites
1/4 teaspoon (1 ml) cream of tartar
1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla
1 1/3 cups (260 grams) granulated sugar
1 cup (120 grams) chopped pecans (I toasted mine)
1 cup (90 grams) shredded coconut
3 cups (130 grams) corn flakes, crushed after measuring

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a couple of cookie sheets with parchment.

Beat the egg whites until they are white and foamy, then add cream of tartar and beat until stiff peaks form. Beat in vanilla. Gradually beat in sugar until mixture is stiff and glossy.

Fold in pecans, coconut and corn flakes.

Drop by rounded tablespoons, about 3 inches apart, onto the parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Bake 15 minutes or until lightly browned

Macaroons? Meringues? I’m so confused!

Whenever I see egg whites, no flour and butter, I instantly think–healthy! ;)

I love the look of these cookies. I need to invest in some corn flakes, huh? These cookies have me sorely tempted right now.

Thank you so much! I’ve been making these macaroons for the past two festive seasons and there was always something wrong with the batter. It worked out this time! I dropped the macaroons into tiny cupcakes linings to make it more personalised.Thanks, now I’m going to have a great Eid ul-Fitr.

Good luck! These were on the sweet side, but they were tasty.
