We have been doing a lot of baking this holiday season, both gluten-free and regular. Our most recent creationÂ was this coconut macaroon recipe. It is delightfully gluten-free, a surprise to me. I thought coconut macaroons usually had flour in them.
Allie and I made these coconut macaroons last week using the Perfect Bake Smart Scale and Recipe App. It was a fun experience, and the Perfect Bake made the process really smooth and easy.
The idea behind the Perfect Bake is that you place the mixing bowl on the scale, and your smartphone or tabletÂ work together with the scale to tell you how much of each ingredient to add. It’s baking made so easy Allie could do it by herself!
- 265g Sweetened shredded coconut (about 2¼ cups)
- 60g Egg whites (about 2)
- 70g White sugar (about ⅓ cup)
- 2g Vanilla extract (about ½ teaspoon)
- 2g Almond extract (about ½ teaspoon)
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 350.
- Weigh the coconut and set aside.
- In a medium mixing bowl, combine all remaining ingredients.
- Fold coconut into the liquid mixture. Mix until well coated.
- Each cookie should be about 25g or 1 heaping tablespoon. Spoon out all 15 cookies onto the prepared cookie sheet.
- Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until the coconut is lightly toasted. Cool on the cookie sheet for 15 minutes.
These instructions will work just fine for you, but the whole process is much easier with the Perfect Bake app and scale. The Perfect Bake makes recipe preparation a breeze.
Perfect BakeÂ® Smart Scale & App by Perfect Company
Perfect BakeÂ® is a patented app-controlled smart baking system that turns anyone into a master pastry chef, guaranteeing perfectly delicious results every time. At the heart of the system is a smart digital scale that connects to an innovative app (downloaded for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play) on the userâ€™s tablet or smartphone. Users can choose from hundreds of savory and sweet pastry chef-tested recipes available in the Perfect Bake app or add their own family favorites. Categories range from cakes and cookies, breakfast and ice cream, to gluten-free, sugar-free and vegan options. Recipes are laid out digitally in easy-to-follow color-coded blocks that take users through the entire baking process, from prep to cooling. To measure ingredients, users simply place one of the included color-coded mixing bowls on the smart scale and pour their ingredients, wet or dry, directly into the bowl, while a virtual bowl fills up in real-time on their smart device. No more measuring cups or spoons required. Perfect Bake measures all ingredients by weightâ€”the most accurate way to measureâ€”just like professional pastry chefs. It can also rescale a recipe to a desired serving size, pan size or shape, or to the least ingredient on hand, automatically adjusting all ingredient amounts. Other app features include: a virtual pantry; shopping list generator; in-app timers for mixing, baking and cooling; a portioning meter; plus, more than 60 original how-to videos. With Perfect Bake, baking is more consistent, efficient and less messy. Includes a smart digital scale, three color-coded mixing bowls, an oven thermometer and device stand. Requires three AAA batteries (not included). MSRP: $49.99
