Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line baking trays with parchment.

Step 2

Pulse coconut, sugar, flour, cookie crumbs, cocoa and salt in a food processor (just to grind the coconut a bit). Add butter and pulse until crumbly. Add yolks and vanilla and pulse until dough just starts to come together.

Step 3

On a work surface, lightly dusted with cocoa, roll out wafer cookies ¼-inch thickness. Cut out wafer cookies with a 1 ½-inch cookie cutter, re-rolling dough. Place wafer cookies on baking tray, one inch apart and bake for 8 to 10 minutes until cookies lift easily from tray. Allow to cool while preparing filling.

Step 4

Beat egg whites until foamy, then slowly add in 2 ½ cups icing sugar on low speed. Add peppermint extract and increase speed to high. Beat for 3 minutes, until filling has body, but is still soft. Adjust with additional icing sugar, if needed.

Step 5

Add raspberries, sugar and zest and juice of lemon to blender or food processor. Puree until smooth. Strain.

Step 6

Spoon or pipe between filling between 3 chocolate mint wafers per serving. Garnish plate with the raspberry coulis, raspberries and fresh sprig of mint.
