Coconut Cookies


Coconut Cookies.jpg

During my studies in the States I had the chance to meet people from all over the world. My best friend was from Nigeria and I made friends from Colombia, Sweden, Spain, Singapore, Indonesia, Sudan and several other countries. I had a Swiss teacher called Mr. Bachli and he was such a fun person to be with. Apart from Mr. Bachli and Heidi, of course, I had the chance to get to know Sissi. Sissi is Swiss and she has a beautiful blog called With a Glass. You can find Swiss and international dishes in her blog. It is the first time I make a recipe of hers, but I can assure you it won’t be the last. Do visit her blog and check out her awesome recipes and photos.

When I saw these cookies I couldn’t resist for two reasons. First, they only needed 3 very common ingredients and second they were so easy and fast to make! Well, I lied I have another one serious reason; my husband! He is a huge fan of coconut. He simply loves the stuff.

So, that was it then, I decided to go ahead and make them.

My friends you cannot believe how easy and tasty these cookies are. Total time of preparation and baking is 25 minutes. Amazing ha?

Easy, cheap and delicious what more can I ask? I guess nothing else. Thanks Sissi for this easy and delicious recipe. For me who have to deal with the lack of time every single day, this is an oasis. By the way, I made two batches at the same day as the one just vanished in 5 minutes.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 175°C/345°F.

In a bowl throw the egg whites.

Throw the first 4 tbsp of sugar and coconut and mix with a spoon.

Then throw the rest of the sugar and another 4 tbsp of coconut and mix again.

Throw another 4 tbsp of coconut and mix.

At this moment a sticky, moist dough must have formed.

If you can work with it then do not throw the other tbsp. of the coconut.

If you see that it still needs another one then go ahead and put it in.

With gloves or wet hands form small balls, as small as an apricot, and place them on a parchment paper on a baking tray.

In some of them, I made a little hole with my finger and filled it with chocolate chips. You cannot blame a girl for her love for chocolate.

Bake for about 20 minutes, mine took couple of minutes less, and remove from the oven as soon as they have acquired a light golden color.

Let cool and enjoy!

Μπισκότα Καρύδας
 
Author/ Συγγραφέας:
Recipe type/ Τύπος Πιάτου: Μπισκότα

Ingredients/ Συστατικά
  • 2 ασπράδια αυγών, χρησιμοποίησα μεγάλου μεγέθους αυγά
  • 7 κ.σ. ζάχαρη άχνη
  • 12 γεμάτες κ.σ. + 1 επίπεδη κ.σ. νιφάδες καρύδας

Instructions/ Εκτέλεση
  1. Προθερμαίνετε το φούρνο στους 175 ° C.
  2. Σε ένα μπολ ρίξτε τα ασπράδια αυγών.
  3. Ρίξτε τις πρώτες 4 κ.σ. ζάχαρη και νιφάδες καρύδας και αναμείξτε με ένα κουτάλι.
  4. Στη συνέχεια ρίξτε το υπόλοιπο της ζάχαρης και άλλες 4 κ.σ. της καρύδας και αναμείξτε ξανά.
  5. Ρίξτε και άλλες 4 κ.σ. καρύδας και αναμείξτε.
  6. Αυτή τη στιγμή πρέπει να έχει σχηματιστεί μια κολλώδης, υγρή ζύμη.
  7. Εάν μπορείτε να εργαστείτε με αυτή μην βάλετε την τελευταία κ.σ. καρύδας.
  8. Αν δείτε ότι εξακολουθεί να τη χρειάζεται προσθέστε τη και ανακατέψτε ξανά.
  9. Με υγρά χέρια ή με γάντια φτιάξτε μικρές μπάλες, όσο ένα βερύκοκο, και βάλτε τις σε ένα ταψί στρωμένο με χαρτί ψησίματος.
  10. Σε μερικά από αυτά έκανα μια μικρή λακούβα στο κέντρο και τη γέμισα με μπαλίτσες σοκολάτας.
  11. Δεν μπορούσα να αντισταθώ στον πειρασμό!
  12. Ψήστε για περίπου 20 λεπτά, τα δικά μου μου πήραν δυο λεπτά λιγότερο, και βγάλτε τα από το φούρνο μόλις αποκτήσουν ένα απαλό χρυσό χρώμα.
  13. Αφήστε τα να κρυώσουν και απολαύστε τα!
