Cornflake and Coconut Meringue Cookies

  • 3 eggs whites
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 4 cups cornflakes, crushed
  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  1. Beat egg whites on medium high. Gradually add sugar. Continue to beat egg whites until sugar is dissolved and soft peaks form. Mixture will be very glossy.
