List of ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • 170 grams of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla aroma

  • 75 grams of coconut flour/flakes
  • 50 grams of crushed nuts
  • 115 grams of butter
  • 130 grams of flour

We start of by preparing the base of our dessert. We do that by putting 130 grams of flour combined with 70 grams of sugar in a mixing bowl. Next step requires our hands to get involved. So we simply grab the butter and start mixing it together with the sugar and the flour until it gets the consistency of breadcrumbs.

Next we grab a baking tray and cover it with parchment paper. The size of the baking try should be 33 cm * 23 cm . And  now we simply spread the mixture equally throughout the entire baking tray.

We put the baking tray in the oven for 8-10 minutes at 175°C (347° Fahrenheit).

In the meantime we prepare the coconut layer. We do so by mixing 1 egg combined with 100 grams of sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar.

And now we start whisking.

After the mixture gets a texture that is similar to this one add 50 grams of crushed nuts.

After this is mixed well we add our finaly ingredient which in my case is 75 grams of coconut flakes.

In the end it should look like this.

When the base has fully baked we take it out of the oven and wait a tiny bit for it to cool down. Then we start adding the upper layer to our base.

All there is left to do is to fully bake this dessert. So once again put it in the oven at 175°C (347° Fahrenheit). However this time we want it to bake a bit longer around 12-15 minutes.

After it has fully baked take it out of the oven and let it cool down. This makes it so it is easier to cut and it is not so sticky.

After waiting a short while grab a knife and start cutting small squares.

Now we mix this mixture until it becomes hard and thick.

Next we start mixing in 200 grams of coconut flour slowly and make sure we don’t liquify the mixture too much.

Next we prepare our baking try on which we put some parchment paper.

20170228_180202.jpg

The only thing left to do is to create the kisses. We do that by grabing a piping bag and filling it up with the mixture we made a few minutes earlier. Now we jsut start making shapes looking similar to this.

20170228_180944.jpg

We put this baking tray in the oven for 20 minutes on 150°C ( 302 Fahrenheit) and the coconut kisses are ready to eat.

Enjoy this very simple dessert.

Crack Cookies

List of ingredients:

  • 250 grams of coconut flour
  • 120 grams of cocoa ( I used 2 different types of cocoa but that is just personal preference)
  • 100 grams of crushed nuts
  • 250 grams of powdered sugar
  • 3 egg whites
  • 3 egg yolks
  • extra powdered sugar (cca. 100 grams)

20161204_123710.jpg

First we mix all 3 egg yolks.

20161204_123906.jpg

After this is mixed we start adding 250 grams of powdered sugar.

20161204_123938.jpg

Next we start putting in the cocoa powder.

20161204_124049.jpg

We then follow up with 250 grams of crushed nuts.

20161204_124307.jpg

And that leaves us with only the coconut flour and egg whites. First we are going to put in all 250 grams of cocnut flour. While that is mixing well we can take that time to beat up the egg whites.

20161204_12450020161204_124910

Last but certainly not least we mix in the beaten up egg whites ino our mixture. I’d recommend using a whisk for this so we do not ruin the properties of beaten up egg whites.

20161204_125153.jpg

Bonus tip: Mix in the beaten up egg whites by only lifting up the mixture and putting it on top of the beaten up egg whites and not actually whisking it because then we would be doing the same thing a mixer is doing it.

20161204_125602.jpg

Now we can prepare to get our hands “dirty”. We must prepare a baking tray which is covered with a layer of parchment paper so that our cookies won’t stick to it. We need to also get ourselves a plate in which we have 100 or so grams of powdered sugar so we can roll our crack cookies into it.

20161204_125751.jpg

Now we finally start making little ball shapped cookies and rolling them over some powdered sugar.

20161204_12583020161204_130008.jpg

After some time and effort our baking tray should be looking a little something like this.

20161204_131310.jpg

You should also make sure that you do not put them too close to one another since they rise in the oven.

They make at around 180 °C ( 356 Fahrenheit) for 5-7 minutes. I wouldn’t recommend any more than that since they easily burn.

I decided so serve them up with a cup of tea since that combination is to die for.
