Besitos de Coco Recipe

Besitos de Coco

Besitos de Coco (or Coconut Kisses) are the Latin version of Coconut Macaroons.  These delightful confections will melt in your mouth!  They are a perennial favorite here in Puerto Rico and super-easy to make.  There are many variations to this recipe, but below is a good basic one.  This recipe can then be dressed up by adding a chocolate kiss on the top, drizzling chocolate, or adding nuts.


    • 3 c. coconut flakes
      4 tsp. butter, softened
      8 tbsp. flour
      4 egg yolks
      1 lemon peel shaving
      1 cp. brown sugar
      1 tsp. vanilla extract
      1/4 tsp. sea salt

Directions to Make Besitos de Coco:

Preheat oven to 350 F and pre-grease a cookie sheet.  In a bowl, thoroughly mix all ingredients together until they are a dough. Divide into little cookie balls and place on pan. Bake for 30-40 minutes.   Allow the coconut edges to get slightly browned. Enjoy!
