    GlutenFreeGirl's Note:

    I made these cookies last night and they were delicious. They were very easy to make and the clean up was easy as well. The only thing I would do different next time is double the batch, I only got 10 cookies and they were all eaten in 15 minuetes.This cookie will definetly have a special place reserved on my Christmas cookie tray.

      In a medium size bowl with an electric mixer, beat the egg whites and salt together until they form soft peaks, then sprinkle in the sugar and continue beating until peaks are stiff.
    4. 4
      Add almond extract and give it a quick buzz with the beaters just to incorporate it.

      Now, with a wooden spoon stir in half the coconut;then the nutmeg;then the flour;then finally fold in the remaining coconut.
    6. 6
      Using a scoop or just working with two spoons, form snowballs a couple of inches apart on your cookie sheets--aim for about 10 so that you can keep them on the same sheet.

      I just made these. Making them big, I did get 10 cookies. Very festive and sweet cookie. Thanks for the recipe.

      nice and easy cookie to make. that nutmeg was a little bit much and i'll half it next time but the cookie was nice. i would recommend covering the cookies because they do seem to dry out a little too much to be overly tasty the next day. i also skipped the cherry since i'm not overly fond of the maraschino cherry.

      With Christmas fast approaching I hurriedly searched for a cookie I could make for a friend. The cookie must be gluten free and because of a snow storm, it had to be with the ingredients I had at hand. I was so thrilled with the outcome of these cookies. They look so festive and were so easy to make. Most of all, they taste great. As my Norwegian ancestors would say: "Tusen Takk" which means a thousand thanks.
