    Easy and delicious! I only tried this as I had some left-over egg whites from a creme brulee that I had made. I only had 150gms of coconut but they were fine. Will make again but next time I will halve the amount as it made about 50!  -  24 Sep 2014


    This turned out great! I cooked it in a gas oven so I had to adjust the cooking time. But it was a real hit! Thanks for sharing this recipe!  -  15 Nov 2016
