  4                     egg whites -- at room temperature

Preheat oven to 325.  Spray two baking sheets with butter-flavored Pam.

With an electric mixer on medium speed, beat egg whites until medium peaks

up speed to high and continue beating until stiff (but not dry) peaks form.

Using a rubber spatula, fold in coconut.  Drop tablespoon-sized mounds of
mixture onto prepared baking sheets.

Bake 15 minutes.  Cool on sheets 1 minute before carefully transferring to
wire racks to cool completely.
