coconut meringues

15 Mar

Yesterday, I received a really nice phone call from a woman who used to read my column in the Esra Magazine.  She said she was going through her stuff and had come across some of her favorite recipes, the ones that she uses repeatedly, and called to tell me that she misses my column.  

“What would Rosh Hashana be”, she said, “without your honey cake recipe? The chocolate thumbprint cookies have become a staple in my house!  And what about the delicious caramel apple tart?   Granted some of  the recipes you printed were too complicated for me, but most of them were so doable and I’ve made them over and over again!”  Where are you???

So thank you, Mrs. K., for your kind words, and I promised you a recipe on the blog, so here goes.  This ones a keeper!

COCONUT MERINGUES

Ingredients

  • 6 egg whites
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 6 cups corn flakes, crushed by hand or with a rolling-pin
  • 2 1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips

 

  • chocolate for decoration

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. 

Beat egg whites with electric beaters on high-speed.  Add a pinch of salt as it starts to froth.  Slowly add all of the sugar until it is thick and glossy.  Reduce speed to med-low and add the rest of the ingredients.  Use a tablespoon or melon ball size scoop to drop cookies onto the cookie sheet.

Bake for 12-15 minutes.  Drizzle with melted chocolate.

*note:  Shehakol is said on these cookies
