Expert Tips

Keep in a sealed contained for up to five days. These cookies can also be frozen and kept for three months.

Cocadas have always been one of my favorite cookies-they're sold in all the bakeries back home. I love the contrast between the crunchy outside and the soft, dulce inside. I never imagined that they would be so easy to make at home, and with so few ingredients. You have to try them!

To decorate, try dipping in chocolate.

Directions

  • 1 In a medium-sized pot, combine all the ingredients and mix well.
  • 2 Cook over medium-low heat while constantly stirring. When the mixture is thick and bubbling, remove from heat. This should take 12-15 minutes, but be careful to not over-cook or let the contents turn brown.
  • 3 When finished, transfer to a bowl to stop the cooking process and let cool for 10 minutes. The mixture should be comfortable to touch (not hot) when forming the cookies.
  • 4 Next pre-heat your oven to 350°F and cover a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  • 5 To form the cocadas, take small spoonfuls of the prepared coconut - about 1 1/4-inch wide - and place over the covered baking sheet. The cookies can be placed close together since they won’t rise in the oven.
  • 6 Bake for 18-20 minutes until the cookies look like they’re about to burn, to get a nice, crispy outside. Remove from the oven and let cool on the sheet before storing.
