Coconut cookies from France, these rich treats are great as a dessert or a snack.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 7 ounces coconut, shredded
  • 6 ounces sugar
  • 13 ounce vanilla sugar
  • 3 egg whites

Directions

  1. Preheat oven at 400°F; prepare a baking sheet.
  2. Pour the egg whites, sugar and vanilla sugar into a saucepan over medium heat, then start whisking vigourously until they get hot and frothy.
  3. Take away from flame and keep whisking until temperature cools down a bit.
  4. Pour the shredded coconut in all at once and mix together with a wooden spoon.
  5. Place balls of coconut mixture on the baking sheet (about 2.5 inches in diameter).
