These were awesome. I've always wanted to make meringues and gave this a try. They are unbelievably easy and oh so delicious. The coconut adds a great texture. I only added about 3/4 cup and to me that was perfect.
I took these to a French Pot-Luck.. and everybody just snatched them within an hour.. they were begging for the recipe. Thanks naoma*//
Awesome!!! These may be the best meringues I've ever had. Baking time is perfect, resulting in cookies that are crisp throughout with coconut that is perfectly toasted. Loved the almond extract. The uncooked mixture is the most beautiful pink color but didn't stay that color after baking, so I would skip the coloring next time. So, so good! They won't last long around here. Thanks, Mirj, for the recipe!
