On Sunday I decided to make a nice tray of pastries for the end of a lunch with my whole family. I made the lady’s kisses, “sweet flowers” and tart pastry, cream puffs, and then … I advanced 2 egg whites. With only the egg whites you can prepare a lot of recipes, and these pastries with coconut, a bit exotic, are among my favorites. In addition, these balls are totally gluten-free and dairy-free!
The recipe that I propose is simple and fast, suggested by the pastry chef Maurizio Santin, in his book “Shortbread”.
Preparation time: 10 minutes – Cooking time: 10-15 minutes – Difficulty: Easy
Ingredients (for about 10-15 balls) :
2 egg whites
150g coconut flour
With a wooden spoon or a spatula, mix egg whites and sugar in a double boiler. Then add the coconut flour and continue stirring (photo 1) .
Then work with your hands until the mixture is hot, about 50°C (the mixture will stick to your fingers :-)). Remove from the water bath and preheat the oven to 200 ° C. Then prepare balls with your hands and bake (photo 2) .
Will be ready when they begin to color, crispy outside and soft inside!
Great toghether with a cup of tea, with an exotic flavor…hot or cold!
