This flourless cookie was a huge hit with my brother and kids--though having three helpers for this project was a bit much! Based off of an old kids' cookbook my mother had saved from my childhood.
Peanut Butter Coconut Clouds
1/4 c. creamy peanut butter
2 egg whites
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2/3 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. unsweetened flaked coconut
Preheat oven to 325 and lightly spray cooking sheets.
In small mixer bowl, beat egg whites, vanilla and salt on high speed until soft peaks form (hint: tips curl over). Gradually add sugar (do not just dump it in), beating until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight.)
Melt peanut butter, about 30 seconds in microwave. Fold in peanut butter and coconut into egg whites. Drop by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.
Bake 15-17 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool for a few minutes before removing from pan. Makes about 2 dozen.
