Not sure why these are called "Farm" meringues, but they are yummy, coconut-ty almond-y meringues. Easy to do and very yummy too! Originally, the name was "Farm Macaroons," but I decided that they were much closer to meringues. Hope you enjoy them!

These yummy cookies were immediately devoured at my house! The kids asked me to make more as soon as the last one was picked off the sheet. Chewy little delights with loads of coconut. I used parchment paper instead of greasing and flouring the pan. RedMeatGirl is right, they fall somewhere between meringues and macaroons. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
