Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 59 calories, 3 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 0 cholesterol, 21 mg sodium, 8 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 1 g protein.

Directions

  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Add vanilla; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Gradually fold in coconut and almonds, about 1/2 cup at a time.
  2. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake at 275° for 25 minutes or until firm to the touch. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. In a microwave, melt chocolate; stir until smooth. Dip the bottom of each cookie in chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until chocolate is set. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 5 dozen.
Editor's Note: To make them all white, dip in melted white chocolate instead. You can also drizzle with chocolate to give them a different look!
