Another quick and easy, but elegant dessert. I was going to pipe melted chocolate lines across the top for an added touch, but these disappear fast. Just glad there were enough to show you a photo!
I use the eggshell method to separate white from yolk. Crack the egg in the middle and gently pull it apart with an upturning and lifting motion over a small bowl to keep the yolk in one half of the eggshell. The white will pull away and slip into the small bowl. Gently pour the remnants of the egg back and forth between the two more or less equal half egg shells, being careful not to puncture the egg yolk. Pour the separated egg white into your mixing bowl before breaking another egg. If the next egg yolk does break, you will only have contaminated one white. Egg whites won’t whip if there is any egg yolk in the bowl – not important for this recipe, just a bonus tip! And yes – they do make egg separators and yes, there is one in the back of the drawer, but using it would take the challenge out of my day!
You can use shredded coconut, but I prefer the smaller bits of flaked coconut. Some cooks like to mix flaked and shredded, sweetened and unsweetened – even if they did not have only a quarter cup in one bag and are substituting the other. Imagine! If your pantry is so organized and well supplied that you have two kinds of coconut at the same time, you go right ahead and open both packages at once. You know that doesn’t happen here!
This time I used an oval 2 tablespoon coffee scoop to put the mixture on the baking sheet. It made a larger, flatter cookie than the ice cream scoop that also holds 2 tablespoons. The mixture will not change shape during baking, so feel free to sculpt if so inclined. Baking takes the full 15 minutes in my oven. You can reduce the temperature to 350 if the coconut begins to brown quickly , but the cookies are still wet looking and to the touch. Watch closely the last few minutes of baking. The cookies will have golden tipped coconut and a golden bottom edge when done. They will hold their shape when touched, but will feel a little damp. Cookies will firm as they cool.
