Save Your Hearing Day reminds us that our hearing is vital, and needs to be protected.
Many hearing loss problems are avoidable. Hearing loss can result from a variety of reasons, including: health, genetic and environmental causes. On the environmental side, repeated long term exposure to loud, high decibel noises can overtime cause hearing loss. This cause, in particular, is often avoidable.
1 cup white sugar
dash of salt
3 cups shredded coconut
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/2-1 semi-sweet chocolate, melted
Finely shredded coconut, for sprinkling
In a stainless steel bowl over a pot of simmering water (or a double boiler if you're fancy like that), whisk together the egg whites, sugar and salt until they are warm to the touch and frothy and creamy. The sugar will be fully melted and everything should be a uniform white color. Remove from the heat. Add the vanilla, flour, and coconut and stir to combine; it will be sticky. Cover with plastic wrap and stick it in the fridge for an hour or two until the mixture is firm.
Once your cookie dough is firm, preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and line two baking sheets with parchment. These cookies are a little sticky and parchment can do double duty here to hold the cookies after they have been dipped in chocolate, so I strongly suggest that you use it.
Using a small cookie scoop, about 1 Tbs, scoop the cookies onto the parchment. They don't really expand, so they only need 1"-1 1/4" between the cookies; enough so that if they do spread they aren't stuck together. Bake them for 10-15 mins, until the tops are golden brown.
Remember: when you talk you only repeat what you already know, but if you listen you may learn something
