Ingredients

  • 14 ounces sweetened shredded coconut
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 extra-large egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

Begin by preheating your oven to 325°F and lining your sheet pans with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, blend together the sweetened shredded coconut, condensed milk, and pure vanilla extract until well combined.

In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip the egg whites with kosher salt. Continue until you achieve medium-firm peaks. Gently fold these whipped egg whites into your coconut mixture, ensuring a light and airy batter.

Using an ice cream scoop or two teaspoons, drop the batter onto your prepared sheet pans, spacing them evenly. Bake these morsels for 20 to 25 minutes or until they turn a beautiful golden brown. Once baked, allow them to cool before serving.

If you want to kick it up a notch, drizzle the cookies with melted chocolate! This recipe make 20-22 cookies.
