  • Holy Grail Recipes - African Coconut Cookies


    yield: 8-19 Cookies;  prep time: 10 minutes;  cook time: 15 minutes;  total time: 25 minutes

    Huzzah! A solution for the put upon 5oz swallow (African or otherwise) tasked with carrying a 1lb coconut from tropical climes. Gone are the days when we ask our avian friends to simply "grip it by the husk!" Introducing this coconut cookie, a tasty treat from Nigeria light enough for birds of (almost all) air speed velocities.

    1 cup Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
    1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
    1/4 cup Self-Rising Flour, plus more for coating
    4 Egg Yolks (medium eggs)

    Preheat the oven to 350F. Mix together the coconut, sugar and egg yolks to form a stiff, dough-like consistency.

    Take a little of the mixture and squeeze into balls about 1 inch in diameter. Coat with additional flour and arrange on a baking tray.

    Bake for 15 minutes until golden in color, and serve inside coconut halves if you're fancy and only once you've finished playing horsie with them.

    Splitting a coconut is surprisingly simple-- use a hammer to pierce the "eyes" and let the juice out, then hit the coconut with the hammer in a full rotation around the middle. A hairline crack will appear and then widen.
