We first tasted this cookies at a friend’s house. She has 9 kids. I thought “how in the world can she find the time to make such meltdown-in-your-mouth cookies and take care of 9 kids?“.
Elmer and the kids raved about it.
Then I asked her for the recipe which she kindly shared. It occurred to me that I can bake this on a whim, even my kids can make this on their own.
You know what? Nina, my 4-year-old, nailed it with a little help from Kuya Pio.
Won’t keep the recipe for long. More than happy to share.
1 cup self-raising flour
1 cup dessicated coconut
1 cup sugar
125g melted butter
1 well beaten egg
Mix dry ingredients together, then add melted butter and beaten egg. Stir well. Roll into balls. Arrange on baking tray, lined with baking paper.
Bake for about 10-12 minutes at 160 degrees C.
It doesn’t get anymore simpler than this.
I love the aroma of newly-baked cookies. It warms up the house.
