I've made these for several years and the only thing I do differently is to line the baking sheets with parchment. This keeps cleanup to the bare minimum and these are wonderful. They should be made in small batches as they don't retain their crispness for long but they are delicious. I forgot to add that I often use liquid egg whites for this recipe with no discernable difference.
I love coconut so was not surprised at how much I liked these. I was shocked, however, when my husband, who doesn't really like coconut, kept sneaking into the kitchen to eat them. They're so easy to prepare, are not overly sweet, and have a good texture. The only thing I changed was that I reduced the sugar to 1/2 a cup, and followed someone's advice and did half almond, half vanilla extract. They are great, and you could even fancy them up with cherry's or chocolate.
I followed the recipe exactly and ended up with moist and delicious perfection! I dressed them up a bit by drizzing melted chocolate on some - it wasn't enough to change the flavor, but just made them look gorgeous. A favorite on the cookie tray this year!
