Lime-Piloncillo Cocada

Ingredients
1
teaspoon vanilla
1/4
teaspoon cream of tartar
1/8
teaspoon salt
1 1/3
cups grated piloncillo (Mexican dark brown sugar) (about 5 ounces) or packed brown sugar
1
14 ounce package flaked coconut
1/2
cup chopped roasted and salted pistachio nuts or chopped toasted almonds

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In an extra large mixing bowl combine egg whites, vanilla, cream of tartar, and salt. Beat with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form (tips curl). Gradually add grated piloncillo, about 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). In a medium bowl stir together coconut, nuts, and lime peel. Fold coconut mixture into egg white mixture, half at a time.
  2. Drop dough by teaspoons 1 inch apart onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to wire racks; cool.
