Coconut Cookies




In a large bowl, cream the butter with half the sugar until creamy.

Add the coconut, the flour and the lemon zest. Mix until well blended.

In a separated bowl, beat the egg whites until foamy, add the half of the sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.

With a spatula combine the coconut mixture and the egg whites mixture, until just combined.

Spoon the batter in a lined baking tray (leaving 2 cm between).

Bake in a previously pre-heated oven at 180°C for 10 minutes or until lightly golden.

Sprinkle with some extra coconut or powder sugar.
