About this recipe:These French macaroons are very easy to make and have an exotic flavour that will wow everyone! The trick to using the pastry bag is to hold the bag perpendicular to the baking tray, rather than at an angle.

Add a pinch of salt to a bowl then the egg whites and whisk until stiff. In another bowl, mix the ground almonds with icing sugar and desiccated coconut. Stir this mixture into the egg whites and mix until smooth and shiny.
Line a baking tray with baking parchment. Preheat the oven to 150 C / Gas 2.
Pour the batter into a pastry bag, squeeze the bag and put a spoonful of batter onto the baking parchment at regular intervals. Set aside for 30 minutes.
For the filling: Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler over medium heat and add the cream. Stir in the coconut. Mix well. Refrigerate.
Bake the macaroons in oven for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool.
Take one macaroon and spoon the chocolate and coconut filling on the flat part. Take a second macaroon and put on top of the filling. The 2 macaroons should stick to the filling.
