Irish Dessert name? 10 points best answer!!?!

Question: Irish Dessert name? 10 points best answer!!?
So about 5 years ago, on St. Patrick's day, we made this Irish dessert that tasted SOO yummy...i'm not sure what it was called, and I'm trying to remember because I need something new to bake for tomorrow. It was kinda like a dessert made from dough, and I'm pretty sure there were coconut shreds sprinkled on the outside. Also, it wasn't flat like a cookie, it was pretty round, about the size of a Dunkin Donuts Munchkin. Can you guys help me figure out what the name was? Thank you so much, remember 10 points!


Unsweetened shredded coconut is available in health food stores. You can also use sweetened shredded coconut (reduce the sugar in the recipe from 3/4 cup to 1 tablespoon). For the variations, pair the coconut with chocolate – chips or cocoa powder – to create rich combinations reminiscent of a candy bar. Makes about 1 1/2 dozen.

3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups (about 3 ounces) unsweetened shredded coconut
2 large egg whites
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine sugar, coconut, egg whites, vanilla, and salt. Use your hands to mix well, completely combining ingredients.

Dampen hands with cold water. Use 1 1/2 tablespoons to form mounds; place on prepared baking sheet, spacing about 1 inch apart.

Bake until golden brown, 16 to 17 minutes, rotating halfway through. Let cool on a wire rack. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.

This is a recipe someone posted that said they got it from martha stewart. I know macaroons in the ball shape but all the irish recipes I found said to make them as a bar. There are tea cookies too but I did not see any with coconut not that you couldn't add it if you liked.

this might be it says to coat in topping of your choice could easily be coconut
