What you do:

On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, place butter cookies about 1-2” apart.  Set aside.

Combine the raisins, coconut and sliced almonds in a food processor and blend about 2-3 minutes or until finely chopped and incorporated.  Makes about 2 to 2 ½ cups.  Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, place egg whites, salt, and cream of tartar.  With a hand mixer starting on a medium speed begin whipping egg whites.  Increase speed to high and whip until stiff peaks form.

Immediately and gently fold in the finely chopped raisin/coconut/almond mixture.

With a small spring-form scoop that is about a heaping tablespoon plus (and that allows a release), dollop on top of each cookie.  Sprinkle on each some of the shimmering decorative sugar.  Bake in a preheated 325 oven for about 10 minutes or until the haystacks are light golden brown.

Remove and let cool.  Note:  These haystacks can also be drizzled with a chocolate ganache!
