Cook the mixture at medium + heat while constantly stirring. This takes 5-10 minutes. You should have a sticky batter. Then add flour and mix till it's well incorporated. Now the coconut macaroon dough is ready. Here are some pictures before and after. It should be shiny because of the melted sugar.
