Jerry Tewell in our pastry department knows that these are my weakness. They remind me of a Mounds Bar, only better. This is the ideal cookie to serve with coconut ice cream and hot fudge sauce. Bet you can’t eat just one.


  • 5 large egg whites
  • 1⅓ cups sugar
  • 5 cups long-shred unsweete



Preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Line baking sheets with baker’s parchment.

Whisk the egg whites and sugar in a bowl over simmering water until warm. Remove from the heat and beat on high speed until stiff peaks form. Then fold in the coconut and vanilla.
