Prepare the topping by beating the egg whites until stiff; add the sugar gradually, beating constantly. Fold in the walnuts and coconut.

Place the rounds on a greased baking sheet and top each with the meringue. Bake in a moderate oven (350 degrees F.) for about 12 minutes, or until delicately browned.
