3 egg whites
2 cups sweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
zest of 1 lime
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients thoroughly. Form into small balls and place 1/2 inch apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 12 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.
Lime juice often loses some of its flavor during baking due to high heat. These macaroons, however, bake for such a small amount of time, it's not an issue.
