Fruity, Nutty, Ginger, Cherry Macaroons

Ingredients
  • 2 cups coarsely shredded coconut
  • 2 cups dessicated (finely shredded) coconut
  • 1 tin (415g) sweetened condensed skim milk (try soy or rice milk)
  • 1 1/2 cups mixed dried fruit
  • 125g hazelnuts, crushed (or your favourite nuts)
  • 90g (3oz) glace (candied) cherries, halved
  • 90g (3oz) chopped preserved ginger in syrup or 1 teaspoon ground ginger
Instructions

In a large bowl, stir everything except the condensed milk. Add the condensed milk and mix thoroughly. Dollop teaspoonfuls of the macaroons mixture on to a non-stick baking tray. Bake for 145 C (300 F) until slightly golden - about 25 minutes. Macaroons burn easily, so watch them for the last five minutes. Turn off oven and leave the macaroons in oven for another half an hour. Leave the macaroons on the baking tray to cool slightly before putting on a cooling rack. Note: Use preserved ginger in syrup if you can. Much better than ground ginger. Crystalised ginger, chopped small, also works OK. The macaroons look really tempting if you put half a cherry on top of each one, before putting them in the oven. You'll need about 40 cherry halves. Lactose-free macaroons: Replace the condensed milk with 3/4 cup of caster sugar, two large beaten eggs and two teaspoons of lemon juice. Bake at 170 C (350 F) for about 16 minutes. Rescue them just before they burn. Makes about 40
