Crusty Coconut Merengue Cookies

Crusty Coconut Merengue Cookies

These cookies are so crusty when you take a bite! And yet, they'll instantly get fizzy and melt away. You'll be addicted to the coconut flavor.

Ingredients: makes approx. 30 cookies

Egg white
1
Powdered sugar
30 g
Finely grated coconuts
15 g

Steps

1. Whip the egg white. In between, add the powdered sugar in 3 batches.
2. Whip until stiff peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the finely grated coconuts. (Do not mix too much to maintain the airy texture.)
3. Pour the meringue into a pastry bag and pipe onto a baking tray. (Each meringue should be roughly 2-3 cm big.)
4. Bake for 50 minutes in a 120℃ preheated oven. When done, let the merengue cool on the baking tray. Done!
