    Altered ingredient amounts. These were great! I doubled the recipe as I had 4 egg whites to use up. Also doubled the amount of coconut after that. They turned out perfectly.  -  21 Jul 2008

    These were very good, I enjoyed them a lot. I don't think I will add the almond extract next time though.  -  21 Jul 2008
