Coconut Cookie Nests
Too sweet to hide, these fun coconut cookie nests are the perfect addition to your Easter festivities.
2 large egg whites
2 cups shredded sweetened coconut
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 colors of food coloring (optional)
12 NESTLÉ CRUNCH or BUTTERFINGER NestEggs*, unwrapped
- Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C). Lightly grease and flour baking sheet.
- Whisk egg whites until frothy in medium bowl. Stir in coconut, sugar, flour, vanilla extract and salt until well blended. Divide coconut mixture into 4 bowls. Add 1 to 2 drops different color food coloring to each bowl; mix until colors are dispersed evenly. Drop by tablespoonfuls into 12 mounds 1 1/2 inches apart. Press centers in slightly to form nests.
- Bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until set and lightly golden brown. Remove baking sheet to a wire rack. Cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes; transfer nests to wire rack to cool completely. Place 1 Nestlé NestEgg in each nest before serving.
