Coconut Dreams





I must apologise for not posting any new sweets for a couple of days, but as you can see I've been working on my blog design. I hope you like it? It took me many, many hours....I'm a newbie blogger...so everything takes such a long time. I think I spent two hours or more just to figure out how to add a post divider...but hey, it's cute, so it was worth it:-)

Ok, lets bake cookies! These are brittle and airy cookies with coconut flavours that will make you dream away......and suddenly you've eaten them all! That's how tasty they are! :-)




Coconut Dreams, 25pcs

200 g butter
1 1/2 dl sugar
2 tsp vanilla sugar
2 1/2 dl desiccated coconut
4 tsp baking powder
about 5 dl flour

Preheat the oven to 150 degrees C.

Melt the butter and let it cool a little bit, add sugar and vanilla powder and mix well.

Add coconut flakes, baking powder and flour and combine.

Roll to round balls and bake for about 20 minutes.


I hope you like them!

  7. You have so many wonderful recipes!! These look really lovely and simple. I'm not sure I've seen coconut flakes in Switzerland. Could I use dessicated coconut instead?

    And I'm loving the new blog design! Well done :-)

    1. Thanks you! I must say that your blog inspired me somewhat:-)

      I have updated my recipe for these coconut dreams, from coconut flakes to desiccated coconut as it seems to be the proper name for the cocunut flakes that I used. I didn't know what desiccated coconut was so I googled and found that it was exactly what I had used for these cookies. Thanks!!

    1. Hi,

      I've updated the recipe as it should be vanilla sugar. You can use vanilla extract too. I hope you like them!
