The Desiccated Coconut Cookies are light and chewy, almost like a macaroon. They use a few ingredients, take very little time and effort to make and yes, also taste yum.

Yield: 24 Cookies

Prep. Time: 20 Mins.

Baking Time: 20 Mins.


  • Desiccated Coconut – 175 gms
  • Castor Sugar – 175 gms

  • Egg whites – 2
  • Glace Cherries (cut into bits) – 6

Step 1:      Whisk the egg whites. Then add it to the castor sugar and whisk for 2 minutes.

Step 2:      Add the milk powder and continue mixing with the wire whisk for another two minutes.

Step 3:      Next add the desiccated coconut, 2 tbsp. at a time and mix well until you use all the coconut and a dough is formed. Leave aside for 12 to 15 minutes (no longer).

Step 4:      Set your oven to pre-heat at 200° C for 15 minutes. Meanwhile line a cookie tray with parchment / grease proof paper.

Lower the temperature of the oven to 180° C and place the tray in to the oven and bake for 20 minutes. When done remove the tray and allow to cool.
