  • In a separate bowl, whip egg whites and salt until medium-firm peaks form. Fold egg whites into the coconut mixture until incorporated well.
  • Drop by the spoonful onto prepared baking sheets. (I used a tablespoon-size cookie scoop). Bake 20-25 minutes or until bottoms and tops are golden brown.
