Lemon Coconut Delights

Had a great time working with the Portuguese Kids. They helped film a couple of quick a delicious recipes. Here’s a quick tutorial on making Lemon Coconut Delights!!

Enjoy and share!

I was able to make 28 of them, but that all depends on the size you choose.

 

Ingredients:

4 tablespoons of butter
2 eggs
½ cup sugar
2 ½ cups of sweetened shredded coconut
Zest of 1 lemon


Preparation:

Start by preheating the oven to 350 º F.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add sugar, eggs, grated coconut and lemon zest and quickly stir everything together. You need to make sure the egg tempers quickly, so that it doesn’t become scrabbled. Continue mixing the ingredients for 10 minutes until it forms a dough like mass. Always making sure taking it does not burn at the bottom of the pan.

After the 10 minutes, remove pan from heat and let cool slightly.

Grease cookie sheet or line with parchment paper as to not stick. With a teaspoon start to pick up pieces of dough with your hands, and form into any shape you like or even a small ball.

Place in oven for about 15 minutes, until they are lightly golden browned.
Remove from oven and let cool before eating.
For an added treat…you could melt some chocolate and drizzle on top!! Enjoy!!!
