Coconut Cookies


Delicious, soft, lovely, quick, efficient and inexpensive - a perfect recipe for enjoying a perfect afternoon with unexpected guests, but that will surprise them, because the miniature size concentrates the flavor of coconut and becomes intensely compelling. What is more, the sweet smell emanating from them takes me back to my childhood, to a magical time in which birthdays were celebrated with such delight that, in my eyes, these cookies were the best thing in the world and had to be eaten by the handful!



Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs (whites and yolks separated)
  • 200 gr of grated coconut
  •  200 g of sugar
  •  150 g flour
  •  a pinch of salt

Preparation:

Break the eggs and separate the whites from the yolks. Mix the grated coconut with sugar and the egg yolks always with a fork - no mixer. While always stirring pour the flour bit by bit, with your hands, like raindrops! Knead it with your fingertips. Separately, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt. Add it delicately to the dough prepared earlier, involving with a fork. Place the dough with the help of a spoon and distribute it in crimped paper muffin cups. Bake it for 20 minutes in a preheated oven to 180 ° C.


Deliciosos, macios, adoráveis, rápidos, eficazes e económicos - uma receita perfeita para desfrutar de uma tarde perfeita com convidados inesperados, mas que os irá surpreender, porque o tamanho miniatura concentra o sabor do coco intensamente e os torna irresistíveis. Para além do mais, o suave aroma que deles emana leva-me de volta para a minha infância, para um tempo mágico em que os aniversários eram celebrados com estas delícias que, aos meus olhos, eram a melhor coisa do mundo e tinham de ser comidas às mãos cheias!


Ingredientes:
  • 4 ovos (claras e gemas separadas)
  • 200 gr de coco ralado
  • 200 gr de açúcar
  • 150 gr de farinha
  • 1 pitada de sal

Preparação:

Parte os ovos e separa as claras das gemas. Mistura o coco ralado com o açúcar e  as gemas sempre com um garfo - nada de batedeira. Continuando sempre a mexer e deita a farinha aos pouquinhos, com a mão, como se fosse chuva! Amassa tudo com a ponta dos dedos.  À parte, bate as claras em castelo com uma pitada de sal. Junta-as delicadamente no preparado anterior, envolvendo com um garfo. Coloca a massa com a juda de uma colher e distribui-a por forminhas de papel frisado. Leva a cozer durante 20 minutos em forno pré-aquecido a 180º C.
