How to make Coconut Cookies

This Coconut Cookies Recipe is made from coconut flour, or the "sapal". Sapal is the grated coconut meat after the milk is taken out or extracted. Sapal is usually thrown away, but the ingenious ones still uses the meat by turning them into coconut flour, or by making coconut cookies out of sapal.  This recipe, I guess, is the greener version of the other coconut cookie recipe: macaroons.

Here's how it is done:

You need:

  •     1 cup toasted coconut residue or sapal
  •     1 1/2  cup flour,  sifted
  •     1 cup sugar
  •     1/2 cup evaporated milk
  •     1/2 cup shortening
  •     1 pc egg, well beaten
  •     1/2 tsp Salt
  •     1 tsp cinnamon powder
  •     2 1/2 tsp baking powder


  1.     Cream the shortening and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  2.     Add the egg, then stir in the milk.
  3.     Add sapal.
  4.     Sift the flour, salt, cinnamon and baking powder together into the sapal mixture.  Mix well.
  5.     Drop by teaspoonful into a greased baking sheet.
  6.     Bake in a moderate oven 375°F until brown, about 15 minutes.
