Ingredients

3 large egg whites
at room temperature
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
*
¾ cup sugar
½ teaspoon almond extract
*
½ cup almonds
toasted and finely chopped
*
½ cup coconut, shredded (desiccated)
toasted
*

Directions

Separate one egg at a time into a small bowl, letting the white fall into the bowl and discarding the yolk.

If there is any trace of yolk in the white, discard the white and start over.

Repeat with the remaining 2 eggs.

Add cream of tartar to the whites and beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until soft peaks form.

Slowly add sugar, about 1 tablespoon at a time, until all the sugar has been added.

Continue beating until the whites are stiff and glossy.

Add almond extract and beat for 30 seconds more.

Using a rubber spatula, gently fold almonds and coconut into the meringue until combined, do not overmix.

Place racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven, preheat to 200°F.

Coat 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or baking mats.

Arrange a small amount of the meringue under each corner of the paper to secure it to the pan.

Fill a 1-quart sealable plastic bag (or pastry bag fitted with a ½-inch plain tip) with the meringue.

Seal the bag almost completely, leaving a small opening for air to escape from the top as you squeeze.

Snip off one corner of the bag with scissors, making a ¾ inch-wide opening.

Fold the top of the bag over a few times, then gently push the meringue down to the snipped corner.

Working with the bag perpendicular to the baking sheet, pipe the meringue into 1½-inch-diameter cookies, keeping them about ½ inch apart.

Bake until dry and crisp throughout, about 1½ hours.

Transfer the pans to wire racks and allow to cool to room temperature, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Serve or store at an air-tight container.
