  • Grab 6 eggs and seperate them.
  • Put the separated egg whites in a large mixing bowl and add the powdered sugar.
  • Whisk the egg whites into the powdered sugar with the handmixer until well combined.
  • After the egg whites are well combined with the sugar, add the desiccated coconuts.
  • Stir with a wooden spoon (or let the kitchen machine do all the stirring) until a viscous mass is formed.
  • Once all the desiccated coconut is stirred in, add one tablespoon of breadcrumbs and flour.
  • Preheat the oven to 356 °F (180 °C) top-/ bottom heat
  • Prepare a baking tray, cover it with baking paper and fetch yourself a pastry bag.
  • Use a pastry bag with a medium-sized round tip or a disposable pastry bag where you cut off the cone end in the desired size.
  • Fill the pastry bag with the coconut mixture about half full.
  • Form with the pastry bag small, pyramid-shaped heaps on the baking tray lined with baking paper until the tray is filled up.
  • Bake the cookies for 15 minutes on the middle rack.
  • Continue with the next tray and so on until you have prepared several trays and there is no more dough left.
  • After 15 minutes, the first batch of coconut kisses is ready. Now put them aside and let them rest and cool.
  • Once the coconut kisses have cooled and firmed up a bit, remove them from the tray and store in a well-sealed cookie tin.
