Cocadas -From Bolivia /or/ Macaroons from Italy (Coconut Candies)

Saturday, July 23, 2011
This is my daughter's cooking. She made it for a Spanish class potluck.
Cocadas are lot similar to Macaroons.
Very popular that we have a candy bar in honor -'Almond Joy'

. Grated coconut - 2 2/3 cups
. Sweetened Condensed milk - ¾ cup
. Egg - 1
. Almond extract ( or essence) - ¼ teaspoon

1. In a bowl, mix shredded coconut, egg, condensed milk, and almond essence until everything is well mixed.

2. Let rest for two or three minutes.

3. Spread butter on a baking sheet.

4. Using two teaspoons, put small amounts of the mixture in the baking sheet.

5. Bake at medium temperature (European oven: 163 Celsius degrees; American oven: 325 Fahrenheit degrees) for twenty-five minutes or until they are golden, dry and smooth at the same time.

Yields 24 regular-size coconut candies
