Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Position rack in center of oven; preheat to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

  • Place coconut, almonds, granulated sugar, cocoa, allspice (or cardamom, cinnamon or nutmeg) and salt in a food processor. Pulse to grind the nuts. Add chocolate and pulse to chop. Gradually add egg whites and pulse until the dough holds together when pinched.

  • Drop about 2 teaspoons of dough per cookie onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving 1 inch between each mound. Using 2 dampened fingers, pinch the dough on four sides to form each into a little peak or a flat-sided pyramid.

  • Bake the cookies until they feel firm-ish and peel away easily from the paper (or mat), 22 to 24 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack until the cookies are completely cool, about 30 minutes.

  • Just before serving, dust the cookies with confectioners' sugar.


To make ahead: Store airtight at room temperature for up to 1 week. Dust with confectioners' sugar just before serving.

Equipment: Parchment paper or silicone baking mat
