These were awesome. I've always wanted to make meringues and gave this a try. They are unbelievably easy and oh so delicious. The coconut adds a great texture. I only added about 3/4 cup and to me that was perfect.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 egg whites, at room temperature
  • 0.59 ml salt
  • 236.59 ml sugar
  • 0.13 ml red food coloring
  • 4.92 ml almond extract
  • 295.73 ml shredded coconut

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
  2. Place the egg whites in a glass mixing bowl with the salt.
  3. Beat until the whites are stiff and slowly add 1 cup of sugar, beating constantly.
  4. Gently fold in the red food coloring, extract and coconut.
  5. Do this very slowly to avoid deflating the mixture.
  6. Drop the mixture from a teaspoon onto a greased and well floured baking sheet (I use ungreased parchment paper).
  7. Bake about 30 minutes.
  8. Turn the oven off and let the kisses sit in the oven for 1 1/2 hours.
