Ghosting is a break-up method. that both men and women rule. "However, there is an age group in which mainly men dive" Hegmann knows from his practice. "Since, statistically speaking, women from around 25 and men today only want to enter into a firm bond in their early to mid-30s, women from 25 to early 30s are particularly often affected as victims."

Desiccated coconut – it’s all about the preparation

Fresh from the unopened bag, desiccated coconut is often moist and clumped together, which is why you should let them dry out slightly before processing. For the following recipe, sprinkle 250 grams of desiccated coconut loosely on a baking sheet and let them dry for about 20 minutes at just under 100 degrees with the oven door open. After that, the flakes are easier to process.

The batter for coconut marzipan macaroons

Thoroughly knead 125 grams of sifted powdered sugar with 400 grams of raw marzipan. In a separate vessel, beat five egg whites until stiff and then mix the egg whites with the marzipan. Gradually stir in the coconut flakes that have dried in the meantime, the grated zest of half an organic lemon and another 125 grams of sifted powdered sugar. Season the mixture to taste with two tablespoons of rum and work it into a thick dough.

Bake the coconut macaroons

To bake, place the finished dough in small piles on a baking sheet lined with baking paper or on wafers. This step works best with the help of two teaspoons. Alternatively, you can use a piping bag to spray the batter onto the wafers.

Sprinkle the macaroons with household sugar and bake them in the oven at 160 degrees on the middle rack. After 15 to 20 minutes the dough is lightly browned on the outside and nice and juicy on the inside. Take the finished coconut macaroons out of the oven and let the pastries cool down on a wire rack.
