This is a recipe my aunt made in the 30’s. A meringue cookie with coconut and cornflake cereal. I could never eat enough of them.
Original recipe makes 2 1/2 dozen cookies
2 egg whites
1 cup white sugar
1 cup flaked coconut,
2 cups cornflakes cereal, crushed
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
- In a large glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites to stiff peaks. Stir in white sugar. Fold in coconut and cornflakes. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.
- Bake for 18 minutes in the preheated oven, or until coconut is golden.
