I am joining the blog hop event: Cook Like A Star for the first time, it is organised by Zoe from Bake for Happy Kids. With my tight daily schedule and a nagging hubby, ya nagging on why I need to spend so much time in the kitchen doing my baking :) I've to find a fast, fresh and simple recipe. This is the one, Coconut Macaron Ice-cream Sandwiches by Donna Hay, not only easy to prepare but taste good with baked dessicated coconut too. 

This dessert is a good treat for kids, a browning crispy coconut crust and sweet ice-cream filling will delight theirs day!

    Hi Ah Tze, do we need to beat egg white lightly before mixing to combine with sugar and dessicated coconut? Thanks.

    1. No need, just add all ingredients in one mixing bowl and stir well. You may look at the video which link to Donna HAy recipe.

  9. I was amazed with all very-uniformly shaped macaron and was wondering at first how did you do that...

    Now, I know egg ring is your magic tool! You have made this DH recipe very well.
