DIRECTIONS

  • Set oven to moderate 180°C (350°F).
  • Grease a baking (cookie) sheet.
  • Break egg into a small mixing bowl and beat until it is thick and pale lemon coloured and the beaters leave a 'trail' through the mixture.
  • Gradually add the sugar, beating well after each addition.
  • Fold in the coconut.
  • Now, spoon some of the mixture into an egg cup (or a glass of a similar shape and size).
  • DO *NOT* PRESS DOWN FIRMLY - merely tap very lightly with one finger just to smooth it off.
  • Then, turn the egg cup upside down over the baking sheet and, holding it very slightly above the surface, tap the side sharply with a knife to release the mixture onto the sheet.
  • Repeat.
  • Bake on the centre shelf of a pre-heated 180°C (350°F) oven for 15-20 minutes or until beehives are golden brown.
  • Remove from oven when cooked and gently use a knife to loosen the beehives from the baking sheet.
  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • When cool, store in an airtight biscuit (cookie) tin.
