Wow – Jet propelled Coconut sugar cookie recipe
If you like coconut biscuits, sweets and cookies then this is the recipe for you. It uses only the whites of two eggs. To use up the spare yolks try the Virginia Cookie recipe.
If your friends are anything like mine then you will need to make double quantities – they leave the plate as if jet propelled!
Eggs Whites of two
Caster sugar 4 ozs
Desiccated coconut 6 oz
Set the oven to 325F/ Mark 3.
Grease two baking sheets and cover with rice paper, or cut twenty 2″ squares of rice paper and place on the baking sheet.
Whisk the whites of two eggs hard until very stiff.
Weigh out the sugar and coconut into a bowl and mix roughly by hand.
Fold in the sugar and coconut mixture gently.
Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the rice paper.
Place in the hot oven for 12 to 15 minutes. They should be tinged brown on the ends of the knobbly bits.
Slide the rice paper from the baking sheet and place on a rack to cool.
Make a nice cup of tea so you can enjoy the first one yourself.
