from How to Cook Everything

3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch salt
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well with a rubber spatula or your hands.
Use a non-stick baking sheet, or line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Wet your hands and make small piles of the mixture, each 1 to 2 tablespoons, about an inch apart.
Bake until light brown, about 15 minutes. Remove the baking sheet and cool on a rack for at least 30 minutes before eating. These keep well in a covered container for up to 3 days.
