When I worked for Girl Scouts in Delaware, I always looked forward to the macaroons served at the end of every event at the Hotel DuPont. They are made with almond paster, sugar, and egg whites. They are divine. And a Wilmington tradition.
It was my first time making macaroons and I was a bit unsure. They turned out very nice and easy to make:
2 egg whites
2/3 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1/2 bag of coconut flakes
Preheat oven to 325F. Grease cookie sheet.
Place drops about 2" apart on the cookie sheet.
You could melt chocolate and dip the baked macaroons for some added.
Were they are good as the Hotel DuPont's? Nope. Not even close. Maybe with practice and their recipe.
