This is a yummy meringue cookie recipe so I just had to share it! It is super simple and turns out great.
2 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
2/3 cup sugar
1) Beat egg whites, vanilla and salt until soft peaks form.
2) Gradually add sugar, beating until very stiff and glossy.
3) Fold in coconut.
4) Drop by rounded teaspoons, about 2 inches apart onto greased cookie sheets.
5) Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes or until set and slightly browned.
In the past I have accidentally added the sugar right at the beginning with the egg whites and they still turned out! In fact, that is what happened with the batch shown in these photos. You can also see that I line my baking sheets with parchment paper instead of greasing them, since I prefer this method.
