Love to try new recipes so if you have some good ones, please share.

Here's a good one for you:
Coconut-Macadamia Kisses
Makes 18 servings, 2 kisses each

3 large egg whites, at room temperature
Pinch salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1 tsp coconut extract (optional - I usually omit)
1 1/2 oz. macadamia nuts (18 nuts), halved (Pecans can be substituted for the macadamia nuts).

1. Preheat oven to 250 degree (Fahrenheit). Line baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.

2. In medium bowl, with mixer on medium speed, combine egg whites and salt; beat until foamy. Gradually beat in sugar, beating until shiny and stiff peaks form when beater is lifted. Fold in coconut and coconut extract (if desired).

3. Into pastry bag fitted with large star tip, spoon meringue mixture. Pipe 36 equal rosettes on prepared baking sheet. (If you do not have a pastry bag, spoon approximately 36 rounded tablespoons of meringue mixture onto prepared baking sheet). Arrange half of a macadamia nut (or pecan) in the center of each rosette.

4. Bake 40 minutes, until edges begin to dry and kisses are lightly browned. Turn oven off; let kisses dry in oven, about 3 hours or overnight, until crisp. Peel paper (or foil) from kisses. Store in air-tight container.

Each serving provides 46 calories, 1 g protein, 6g carbohydrate, 19 mg sodium, 0 mg cholesterol.
