Besitos de coco


Besitos de coco reminds me of a very special time with one of my friends from church back in Puerto Rico. I made these for my sister’s birthday and although we ended up keeping them only to ourselves, they didn’t last very long.


There are many ways to make them but I really love this simple recipe. To make this, you’ll need:

Half a can condensed milk
5 1/2 dl (200g) coconut flakes
2 teaspoons vanilla powder
1/2 dl water

Mix the ingredients in a bowl, use a teaspoon to form the cookies and put them on a cookie sheet.
Bake in 165 °C (325 °F) for about 10-15 minutes or until they are golden brown.

These go very well together with a glass of cold milk or a cup of coffee.
