Main Ingredient Coconut

Ingredients

  • 14 ounce/400 grams package sweetened, flaked coconut
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose/plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 egg whites, room temperature
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • chocolate candy eggs

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment/baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, blend coconut, sugar, flour, baking powder, almond extract, and salt until combined.
  3. Beat egg whites in a bowl of stand mixer until soft peaks form. Fold coconut mixture into egg whites until just combined.
  4. Roll spoonfuls of coconut mixture between palms to golf ball size cookies and then flatten into a disk. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake cookies in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, and then open the oven and use the back of a spoon to create a well in the cookie and reshape it into a nest. Continue cooking until coconut is slightly golden and toasted, about 5-10 more minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool, 30 minutes.
  6. Fill each well with Nutella and fill with 3-4 candy coated chocolate eggs.
