8 Schnucks large egg whites
1-1/3 cups Schnucks granulated sugar
4 teaspoons Schnucks pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 packages (14 ounces each) Schnucks sweetened coconut flakes

1. Adjust oven racks to upper and lower positions. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

2. In large bowl, with whisk, beat egg whites, sugar, extracts and salt about 1 minute or until well combined. Add coconut and flour and stir until coconut mixture is moistened and well blended. With wet hands, shape coconut mixture into 1-1/2-inch balls, about 1 rounded measuring tablespoon per ball, and place 1-1/2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets.
