Diet.Guru's picture
  Margarine 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Granulated sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Grated lemon peel 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  All purpose flour 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Farina 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Cold water 7 Teaspoon
  Lemon juice 1 Teaspoon
  Egg white 1
  Shredded coconut 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

Preheat oven to325°F.
In medium mixing bowl cream margarine with sugar and lemon peel; add flour, cereal, 1 tablespoon water, and the lemon juice and mix until thoroughly combined (dough should just hold together but not be too sticky; if necessary, add up to 1 more tablespoon water to adjust consistency).
In small bowl combine egg white with 1 teaspoon water; set aside.
Form dough into a narrow loaf and cut into 32 equal pieces; roll each piece into a round, then flatten with palm of hand.
Dip one side of each flattened round into egg white mixture, then press same side into shredded coconut; arrange rounds coconut-side up on nonstick baking sheet and bake until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes.
Using a spatula, remove cookies to wire rack to cool.
