We all love a quality cookies recipe and if you have had your fill of the famous chocolate cookies I have a fantastic alternative for you with my Coconut Meringue Cookies. These really will put a lovely smile on your face and the kids will just love them. Not to mention the big kid inside all of us!
This is a quick recipe that will be wonderful if you have a spare half an hour.
4 Medium Egg Whites
1.25 Cups of Sugar
0.25 Teaspoon of Salt
0.5 Teaspoon of Vanilla
2.5 Cups of Shredded or Flaked Coconut
Heat the oven to 325 and lightly grease a cookie sheet or cover with baking paper.
Beat the medium egg whites in a large bowl with an electric whisker on a high speed until they resemble a foamy mixture. Beat in the sugar adding one tablespoon at a time and continue beating until stiff and glossy. However please make sure that you do not underbeat the mixture.
Stir the salt into the mixture followed closely by the vanilla and the coconut.
Drop the mixture by heaping teaspoonfuls about two inches apart onto the cookie sheet. Now bake it in the oven for 20 minutes or until it has set and it resembles a lovely light brown.
Cool the cookies for five minutes and then carefully remove them from the cookie sheet and place on a cooling wire. Once they have nicely cooled you will then be able to serve them.
The coconut meringue cookies are a great snack or a perfect finish to a lovely meal.
To your food heaven
