Cooking Recipes Catalogue

One of my students gave me this recipe when I was teaching in Guam almost 20 years ago! Strange list of ingredients, but they're great!

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease or line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Cream the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, vanilla and almond extracts.
  • Add the cornstarch, flour and finely grated coconut. Mix until blended and smooth.
  • Make small balls about 1inch in diameter, then roll on floured board until 7 inch long strip. Twist into a figure "8". Place cookies on the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 20 minutes. Remove form sheets and let cool. May be drizzled with melted chocolate, if desired.
