Ingredients
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons almond paste (marzipan)
1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
2 ounces mini semi-sweet chocolate chips(about 1/3 cup)
3 large egg whites
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

Hardware
Large bowl
Medium bowl
Cookie sheets
Cooking spray
Mixer

Step 1: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Step 2: Lightly coat cookie sheets with cooking spray.
Step 3: In a large bowl, combine almond past and sugar. Using your fingers, work paste into sugar completely.
Step 4: Add coconut and chocolate chips and stir to combine.
Step 5: In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed, whip egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.
Note: When working with whipped egg whites, the key is to not break them while adding ingredients. Slowly fold in ingredients until just combined, do not stir.
Step 6: Add half of egg whites to coconut mixture and slowly fold to combine.
Step 7: Fold in remaining whites gently, being careful to not deflate.
Step 8: Drop by rounded teaspoons onto prepared cookie sheets.
Step 9: Bake for 20 minutes, or until tops are lightly browned.
Step 10: Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets before transferring to cooling rack.

Make about 18 cookies.
