ABOUT THE RECIPE

This recipe is taken from Jane Hewitt’s Heritage CookBook, a collection of recipes divided by regions and styles from modern American traditions. The freshness of the coconut flavor and the crunchiness of the almonds make this recipe perfect for every time of the year: from a summer afternoon (perhaps served with some fruity fresh tea); to a winter chilly evening, eaten with some hot dark chocolate.

As Jane Hewitt wrote in her article, the Coconut Cookies are the perfect treats for baking lovers, and are meant for an “immediate enjoyment”.

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1 cup silvered blanched almonds
