Cuckoo for Coconut Cookies

A few years ago my mother gave me a cookbook that would prompt me to expand my culinary horizons. I have learned so much about baking from Baking Style: Art, Craft, Recipes by Lisa Yockelson. The Mistress of baked goods whips up creations ranging from deep chocolate waffles to golden vanilla cupcakes topped with homemade caramel corn. Her Coconut Clouds recipe is one of my favorites to make. They are a perfect combination of sweet and salty, crisp and light.
