It’s unbelievable how I’m writing right now my new post! I’m writing for a Greek cookies with coconut(karydes in Greek means coconuts) while I’m listening one of my favorite bands,Guns & Roses and drinking coffee!
Well,it’s a combination of different countries and hobbies,for sure! But this really inspires me to write more and more!I guess music has no boundaries and apparently,is an inspiration to everything and anything!!
So,while I was listening with Anna Paradise city,I made in few minutes a very easy dessert.It looks like mini muffin( because I put it in a mini muffin tin) but it’s actually something between scones and soft cookies with coconut.I’m pretty much sure there is some kind of word for this kind of dessert but I can’t really find it!
For karydes you’ll need:
- 320 grams of shredded coconut
- 1/3 sugar
- 3 eggs
- 4 tbsp quinoa flour or any kind of GF flour
- Zest from one lemon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp Amaretto
- 1/2 cup finely shredded hazelnuts
- 50 grams margarine
- 2 tsp baking powder
In a medium bowl,Beat the eggs with the sugar for 3 minutes approximately,till the mixture becomes white and kind of creamy.
Cover the bowl with a wrapping film and let it rest in the fridge for 20 minutes.
They aren’t overly sweet,just enough to fill your mouth with the coconut and lemony delightful combination! The fragrant is amazingly all over the house and it makes you buzz!
