- 2 large eggs
- 100 grams (about 1/2 cup) of granulated sugar
- 170 grams (approximately 1 and 3/4 cups) of sweetened coconut flakes
1. Preheat the Oven:
- Begin by preheating your oven to 170°C (340°F). This step ensures that your cookies will bake evenly to perfection.
2. Prepare the Egg-Sugar Mixture:
- In a mixing bowl, crack the 2 large eggs and add 100 grams of granulated sugar.
- Utilize an electric mixer or a hand whisk to beat the eggs and sugar together on high speed. Continue to beat until the mixture becomes thick, creamy, and takes on a pale color. This usually takes about 2-3 minutes.
3. Incorporate the Coconut Flakes:
- Gradually introduce 170 grams of sweetened coconut flakes into the egg-sugar mixture.
- Stir everything together until it’s well combined. The mixture should be somewhat sticky and able to hold its shape.
4. Shape the Cookies:
- To shape the cookies, moisten your hands with water to prevent sticking. Take small portions of the mixture and shape them into compact balls. You can use a spoon or a cookie scoop to ensure they are evenly sized.
- Place each formed cookie onto a baking tray that has been lined with parchment paper. Leave some space between each cookie to allow for spreading during baking.
5. Baking the Cookies:
- Now, place the baking tray into the preheated oven.
- Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until the cookies turn a delightful golden brown color. Be sure to keep an eye on them to prevent over-browning.
- Once they’re done, carefully remove the tray from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the tray for a few minutes.
- After they have cooled slightly, transfer the cookies to a wire rack to allow them to cool completely. As they cool, they will firm up and develop a wonderful texture.
- Your delightful homemade coconut cookies are now ready to be savored! They make for a perfect sweet treat on any occasion.
These coconut cookies offer a harmonious blend of crispiness and chewiness, showcasing the rich essence of coconut and just the right level of sweetness. Savour them fresh from the oven or store them in an airtight container for later enjoyment. Happy baking!
