These dainty cookies are packed with flavor. Who would guess that each tasty morsel has only 30 calories and 1 gram of fat?

Prep Time: 25 min
Start to Finish: 1 hr


  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups flaked coconut
  • 12 candied cherries, each cut into fourths, if desired


Heat oven to 300F. Cover cookie sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.

  1. Beat egg whites, cream of tartar and salt in small bowl with electric mixer on high speed until foamy. Beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time; continue beating until stiff and glossy. Do not under-beat.
  2. Pour into medium bowl. Fold in almond extract and coconut.
  3. Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls about 1 inch apart onto cookie sheet.
  4. Place 1 cherry piece on each cookie.
  5. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or just until edges are light brown.
  6. Cool 10 minutes; remove from foil to wire rack. (Total time will vary; cook or bake time is per batch.)
