NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 2 egg whites
  • Pinch coarse salt
  • 1/3 cup sugar, eyeball it
  • 1 1/2 cups, about 6 ounces, shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract, eyeball it
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated or ground nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 9 candied red cherries, halved
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites and salt to soft peaks, then add sugar and beat again until peaks are stiff. Beat in almond flavoring. Using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, stir in half of the coconut. Sprinkle in the nutmeg and flour, stir, then fold in the remaining coconut.

Using a melon baller or other small scoop, or working with 2 spoons, form 9 "snowballs" a couple of inches apart on each of 2 cookie sheets. Bake snowballs 12 to 15 minutes, until lightly golden. Remove from oven and garnish each snowball with half a cherry and a couple of slivered almonds. Transfer to a rack or serving plate to cool.
