Need some fast and delicious treats for a gathering or cookie exchange? Here are some more easy cookies from the 1929 Coconut pamphlet cookbook I blogged from on Monday.
1/2 pound marshmallows
1/4 pound walnut halves (48)
1 1/2 cups Baker’s Coconut, Southern Style, chopped
Melt marshmallows in double boiler. Dip nuts into marshmallow, coating well. Roll in coconut. Makes 48.
Chocolate Coconut Patties
1/2 pound Baker’s Dot Dipping Chocolate, cut in small pieces (I’m guessing chocolate chips will work)
1 1/4 cups Baker’s Coconut, Southern Style (Southern Style?)
Melt chocolate in double boiler over lukewarm water, being careful that temperate of chocolate does not rise above 90F, at any time. Add coconut, stirring until well mixed. Cool to 80F. Drop from teaspoon on waxed paper. Keep in cool place until firm. Makes 2 dozen patties.
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup Baker’s Coconut
Put sugar in iron frying pan and place over low flame, stirring constantly, until sugar is melted and straw-colored. Add butter and coconut. Pour into slightly greased pan, 8x8x2 inches. Mark into squares while warm and cut when cold.
