I love halva and tahini, and put them together with coconut to make these delicious macaroons. We call them halvaroons, and they are delicious and easy to make. Perfect for passover!
Yemen N.10 – Recipe and photo by Lior Lev Sercarz
Makes about 15
150 grams shredded unsweetened coconut
40 grams tahini
50 grams halva – crumbled
30 grams sugar
5 grams Yemen N10, or 2.5 grams ginger + 2.5 grams cinnamon
3 grams amchoor (or 3 grams ground green cardamom)
2 egg whites – beaten to soft peaks
1 gram salt
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
In a bowl combine all the ingredients except the beaten egg whites. Gently fold in the whites. Scoop small balls of the batter (about golf ball size) and place evenly on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 12 minutes then let cool.
If using a professional convection oven like we have here at the shop, reduce the heat to 325°F and the baking time to 11 minutes.
