address@hidden -f Test.txt
address@hidden $(LONG_TEXT) >> Test.txt

That can't work in this context because $(LONG_TEXT) is expanded before the recipe. So the recipe ends up looking like:

echo first line
second line

How can I do it?

Get rid of the newlines?

Alternately, you could put them in an extra file (possibly generating that file via make) and do:

@cat thefile >> Test.txt
