These chewy little cookies have a nice coconut and almond flavor...and crisp rice cereal adds a little crunch. Our home economists whipped them up using only five ingredients.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups crisp rice cereal
  • 1-1/4 cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients. With damp fingers, shape into 1-1/2-in. mounds on parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
  • 2. Bake at 300° for 20-25 minutes or just until edges turn brown. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 dozen.
