Directions See How It's Made
- Sift the flour with the dry ingredients.
- Cream the butter; add the egg yolks, one at a time, and continue creaming.
- Stir in the milk or cream.
- Add the flour and mix thoroughly. The dough should be light. Chill for easier handling.

- Prepare the topping by beating the egg whites until stiff; add the sugar gradually, beating constantly. Fold in the walnuts and coconut.
