Everyone has a friend who’s a little rough around the edges. Isn’t that why you love them, though? Well, it’s exactly why you’ll love four-ingredient coconut macaroons. They crisp up at the very end of their baking time – a mere 20 minutes. Like your friend, their jagged edges have formed from enduring extreme conditions. They’re a bit seared, yes, but not totally burnt, which means you get an enjoyable blend of hard, soft, toasted and sweet. Biting into one of these treats is hardly rough.
