Ingredients

3
large egg whites
3/4 c
sugar
1 tsp
cornstarch
1 tsp
coconut extract
2 c
sweetened coconut, shredded

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 250F.
Line two baking sheets with foil or parchment Paper.
Stir cornstarch into the the sugar.
2
In a large bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.
Gradually add the sugar, beating, beaten until mixture holds stiff, glossy peaks, like shaving cream.
If it doesn't get completly stiff, that's OK too.
3
Beat in the coconut extract, then fold in the coconut...gently.
Spread the mixture onto the sheets, about 1/2 inch thick.
4
Bake for an hour, then remove from the oven and cool completely.
Peel of the foil and break into shards.
This recipe makes a lot..You can toast the coconut ..if you prefer. Either way this is a delicious recipe
