Gluten Free Disneyland Matterhorn Macaroons Copycat Recipe

Gluten Free Disneyland Matterhorn Macaroons Copycat Recipe - Gluten Free, Egg Free

Disneyland Matterhorn Macaroons Copycat Recipe - Bring Disneyland into your home with this gluten free and allergy friendly copycat recipe. Buttery shortbread meets coconut macaroons and creamy white chocolate in this delicious Disney cookie recipe.


We love Disneyland. It's no secret. We'd spend every day of the rest of our lives there if we could - but alas, there's work to be done, a pandemic that's stopped global travel and Disneyland is closed.... so we're left trying to recreate Disneyland memories at home.

But whilst we love Disneyland for the rides and atmosphere, I know so many people love it for the food (and we do too!).

Walking down Main Street or through the park, every second person you see has a treat in hand and a grin on their face - and on our last trip, I noticed one treat in particular more often than I had before.... the Matterhorn Macaroon.

Shaped like the Matterhorn, this coconut cookie is a cross between a macaroon and buttery shortbread cookie and topped with white chocolate. 

It looked delicious, leaving this coeliac to franctically google: 

Are Disneyland Matterhorn Macaroons gluten free?!

The answer? No.... but that just meant that I had to go home and recreate them for myself.

So let me share them with you >>

The end result is a delicious melt in your mouth cookie that's buttery like shortbread, but full of coconut macaroon flavour.

The outside is crisp, with a creamy white chocolate topping and a soft and buttery centre... it's like eating a mountain of heaven and you'll want to make them again and again.

Better still? Whilst this treat looks and tastes impressive, it's SO easy to make... so you can make your own little slice of Disneyland at home.

Disneyland Matterhorn Macaroons Copycat Recipe - Bring Disneyland into your home with this gluten free and allergy friendly copycat recipe. Buttery shortbread meets coconut macaroons and creamy white chocolate in this delicious Disney cookie recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (200g) butter
  • 1/2 cup (100g) caster sugar/superfine sugar
  • 2 cups (240g) gluten free plain flour*
  • 1/3 cup (30g) cornflour/cornstarch 
  • 1 cup (100g) dessicated coconut or shredded coconut, pulsed in the food processor to make it finer
  • 1 cup white chocolate, to top 
  • Extra coconut, to top 

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 160C/320F. 
  2. Line two baking sheets with baking paper and set aside.
  3. In a mixer, cream your butter and sugar and light and fluffy. 
  4. Add 1 3/4 cups of your flour and the cornstarch and coconut and mix until combined.
  5. If your mix is still quite wet, add your remaining 1/4 cup of flour. Your cookie dough should be slightly firm and easily shaped.
  6. Once your cookie dough is mixed together, form your dough into 12 "mountain" shaped mounds. They will spread slightly during baking but will mostly hold their shape.
  7. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until very lightly golden and the cookies start to firm.
  8. Leave to cool on the trays.
  9. Once your cookies are cooled, melt your chocolate and dip or spoon the chocolate onto your cookies. Sprinkle with coconut and leave to set either at room temperature or in the fridge.
  10. Enjoy immediately!
  11. These cookies are best kept in the fridge in warm climates (to stop the chocolate melting) and will keep for a week or so in an airtight container. 

Notes:

*These can also be made not gluten free by using regular flour. If using regular flour, start with 1 3/4 cup and add the last 1/4 cup only if needed.
