Coconut Meringues
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 2 egg whites
  • dash of salt
  • ⅔ cup granulated sugar
  • 1½ cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Beat egg whites and dash of salt until soft peaks form. Gradually add in sugar while beating until peaks are stiff and glossy. Fold in coconut and vanilla. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto greased baking sheet.
  2. Bake at 325 degrees about 15 - 18 minutes until set and very slightly browned. Center will still be soft. Let cool. Makes about 20 cookies.
Notes
A Silpat liner (as shown) can be used instead of a greased baking sheet, but I actually think I prefer using a greased baking sheet for this particular recipe. The cookies seem a little easier to remove using a greased baking sheet. If cookies harden while removing (when using the greased baking sheet) and are difficult to remove, just pop back in the oven for a few seconds and try again.
