I thought I got this recipe from 101Cookbooks.com, but I can't find it. I only have a printout.

Ahh. I found it. I searched online for key words in the printed recipe that I have: "coconut macroons tedious 32" and it popped right up as the first result. This recipe doesn't use any flour, and the macaroons are a wonderful combination of crunch, sweetness and chewiness, all rolled up into one bite. I plan to make them again!
(or, Rochers à la Noix de Coco)
9 ounces unsweetened dried coconut flakes
3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar (I use unrefined cane sugar)
a fat pinch of salt
3 medium egg whites
Makes about 32.
Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine the coconut, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Add the egg whites and mix them in with a fork.
Scoop out rounded tablespoonfuls of this mixture and shape them into pyramids with your fingers; if you find this too tedious, simple balls will do.
Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes, or until golden at the edges. Let set on the baking sheet for 2 minutes, and transfer to a rack to cool completely.
The rochers will keep for a few days, stored at room temperature in an airtight container.
