Wolfgang Puck Apricot Macaroons Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of dried apricots, cut into quarters
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 3/4 cup of sugar (then add 1 tablespoon sugar more)
  • 4 egg whites
  • 4 1/2 cups of unsweetened shredded coconut

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan, combine apricots, water, and 1 tablespoon sugar.
  2. Cook apricots over medium heat until tender and about 1 tablespoon water remains.
  3. Cool slightly and transfer to a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Add remaining sugar, egg whites, and 1/2 cup coconut.
  4. Then process by first using on-off spurts, and then allow the machine to run until apricots are pureed.
  5. Transfer to a large bowl of an electric mixer. Add remaining coconut.
  6. Beat on medium speed until coconut is well blended.
