  • Beat egg whites in a glass, metal, or ceramic bowl until stiff peaks form. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, and continue beating. Fold in coconut flakes with a spatula.

  • Use 2 teaspoons to place little mounds of coconut mixture 2 inches apart onto the baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the size of the cookies. Allow to cool on baking sheet for a few minutes, then carefully transfer onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Note:

In Germany, Kokosmakronen are baked on edible "Back Oblaten" (very thin round wafer paper) you can order online, but you can put them directly on parchment paper as well.
