RG

Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 cups pecans, finely chopped
  • 1 3/4 cups brown sugar, loosely scooped, not packed
  • 1 cup finely grated coconut
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In large bowl, mix pecans, brown sugar, coconut and salt.
  3. Add honey, egg whites and vanilla extract; blend by hand or with a rubber spatula just until ingredients hold together.
  4. On a baking sheet lined with parchment baking paper or foil, drop batter by rounded tablespoons 1 inch apart.
  5. Bake for about 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Do not over-bake.
  6. Cool completely on lined cookie sheet. If cookies stick, peel paper or foil from cookies.
  7. To store, layer cookies between fresh parchment paper in airtight container.

Bake on a dry day. Humidity makes these cookies very sticky.
