Strawberry coconut cookies

Method

                                                                                                             Photo credit: G. Drakopoulos - Food Styling: T. Webb

  • Preheat oven to 160* C (320* F) Fan.
  • Line 2 rimmed baking pans with parchment paper.
  • Process the grated coconut and sugar for 10 seconds in a food processor.
  • Add the egg whites, salt and almond extract. Process for 1 minute.
  • Add the strawberries and pulse until they break apart but do not let them get completely combined in the mixture. Do not let the whole mixture turn pink; you want to see white pieces of dough in the mixture.
  • Use a spoon or an ice cream scoop, to transfer spoonfuls of the mixture to the baking sheets.
  • The cookies don’t rise much during baking, so you can place them quite close together.
  • Try to scoop up both pink and white dough in each spoonful. A nice two toned effect will be created.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, until they rise a little and turn slightly golden.
  • Do not over-bake. They should be very soft when you remove them from the oven. They will harden as they cool.
  • Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack with the parchment paper. You can also allow them to cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes.
