Coconut Rocks (GF)
I've got a strange feeling about these. They taste great, that's true. But when I baked them for the first time, last Sunday, I got a phone call from my father to tell me my Grandfather had just died...
I'm still quite shaken.
And it feels strange to bake these again... But I still had some coconut left, and my boyfriend really liked them. (So did I, truth to be told.) There's nothing wrong with these cookies, but I know that every time I bake or eat one, I will think of last Sunday. Of November 8th, 2009. Of my Grandfather.
That's not a bad thing, I guess...
Coconut Rocks (Coco Rochers)
• 2 egg whites
• 140g shredded, unsweetened coconut
• 130g white sugar (or powdered sugar)
Preheat the oven at 180°C.
Beat the egg whites until stiff. Add the sugar and beat again. Add the coconut and mix well.
Put small piles of dough on a baking plate. Bake them till golden brown, about 15min.
