“This recipe is from the Anne of Green Gables cookbook. The author is Kate Macdonald who was L.M Montgomery's granddaughter! the quote from Anne of Windy Populars is "No, thank you, Kate, I won't have any more tea...well, mebbe a macaroon. They don't lie heavy on the stomach, but I'm afraid I've et far too much." Unfortunately it does not tell me in the recipe prep time or servings all are estimates.”

  2. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Place whites in large bowl. Beat whites with electric mixer until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and beat until egg whites are still and glossy, but not dry.
  4. With rubber spatula, gently fold sugar, coconut, and almond extract into egg whites. DO NOT STIR.
