2 1/2 cups grated coconut
1 cup cashews, finely ground (I have had bad luck grinding my own without it turning into nut butter- so I prefer to purchase it ground. It's called meal- like almond meal or cashew meal. While on the topic, you can use nuts other than cashew.)
1 cup sugar
3 egg whites
Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gradually add sugar, allowing it to dissolve a little at a time into the egg whites. It should end with a nice glossy appearance. Gently fold in by hand the coconut and ground nuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. Touch each top with a little butter, this ensures a nice golden top. Bake at 325° for 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!
