La Boîte Halvaroons


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!


1 ¾ cups of shredded unsweetened coconut 

3 tablespoons of tahina 

¼ packed cup of halva – crumbled 

2 ½ tablespoons of sugar 

1 tablespoon of Yemen N10 or ½ tablespoon of ginger, 

½ tablespoon of cinnamon 

1 teaspoon of amchoor (or ground green cardamom) 

2 egg whites, beaten to soft peaks 

¼ teaspoon of 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. Makes 15
