Strawberry Macaroon Napoleons

Yield: 6 servings


Coconut Macaroons

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 large egg

Chantilly Cream

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or powder or seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean
  • 3 cups (about 1 pound) fresh California strawberries, stemmed and quartered
  • Granulated sugar


Coconut Macaroons

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 18 cupcake wells.
  2. With a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, stir together coconut and sugar.
  3. Stir in butter and then eggs, mixing until combined.
  4. Place 2 teaspoons of coconut mixture into each cupcake well. Using the back of a spoon dipped in water, press coconut mixture into the well so it completely fills the bottom.
  5. Bake about 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Let macaroons cool in the pans.
  7. With a small sharp knife or offset spatula, loosen macaroons from the wells and remove them.

Chantilly Cream

  1. Whisk cream, sugar and vanilla extract until soft peaks form. The cream should hold its shape but still be satiny in appearance, not grainy.
  2. Gently toss strawberries with enough sugar to sweeten.
  3. Place 1 macaroon on each of six dessert plates. Cover each macaroon with 1/4 cup strawberries and 2 tablespoons Chantilly Cream.
  4. Repeat layering with a second macaroon, 1/4 cup strawberries and 2 tablespoons Chantilly Cream.
  5. Top with a third macaroon.
  6. Serve immediately.
