3 egg whites, at room temperature
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
2 drops red food coloring
1 tsp almond extract
1 1/4 cups shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 300 °F.
Place the egg whites in a glass mixing bowl with the salt.
Beat until the whites are stiff and slowly add 1 cup of sugar, beating constantly.
Gently fold in the red food coloring, extract and coconut.
Do this very slowly to avoid deflating the mixture.
Drop the mixture from a teaspoon onto a greased and well floured baking sheet (I use ungreased parchment paper).
Bake about 30 minutes.
Turn the oven off and let the kisses sit in the oven for 1 1/2 hours.
