4 large egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, divided


Preheat oven to 225°.

Cover 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper, and secure paper with masking tape.

Place egg whites and cream of tartar in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until soft peaks form. Increase speed to high, and gradually add granulated sugar and then powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in 3/4 cup coconut.

Drop 36 mounds onto the prepared baking sheets. Sprinkle 1/4 cup coconut evenly over meringues.

Bake at 225° for 1 1/2 hours. Turn oven off, and cool meringues in closed oven 2 hours or until dry. Carefully remove meringues from paper.
