So often we make a recipe with egg yolks only and have all those egg whites left over and don't know what to do with them. For a quick and easy way to use them up, make this recipe.

Delicious way to use up egg whites and other ingredients. I only used one cup of coconut and added one cup of milk chocolate morsels to equal 2 cups total. I also didn't have almond extract so I subsituted orange extract. By spraying Pam on the aluminum foil, clean up was sooo easy--the cookies peeled right off the foil -- didn't even need to use a spatula. Thanks for the cooking/baking tip.
