Ingredients
  • 2 1/2  cups 
    flaked sweetened coconut (about 7 ounces)
  • 2   cups 
    unsweetened finely shredded coconut*
  • 1   cup 
    sugar
  • 3   tablespoons 
    all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
    salt
  • 4   
    egg whites
  • 1   tablespoon 
    honey
  • 1   teaspoon 
    vanilla
Directions
1.
In a large mixing bowl, combine flaked and shredded coconut until evenly mixed. (Flaked coconut should be broken into separate flakes with only a few very small clumps.)
2.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine sugar, flour, and salt. Add egg whites, honey, and vanilla. Whisk until smooth. Pour sugar mixture over coconut mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon, then use your hands to blend until evenly mixed. Cover with plastic wrap; chill for 30 minutes.
3.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Drop batter by rounded tablespoons 2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheet. Gently pinch mounds into shaggy pyramid shapes. Bake in preheated oven for 17 to 19 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately transfer to a wire rack and let cool. Makes about 40 cookies.
Storage
  • Place cookies in layers separated by waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 1 month.
Tip
  • *Note Look for unsweetened finely shredded coconut in natural-foods stores or in the bulk-food section of your supermarket.
