Preparation Time

40 minutes




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.
