The recipe is from the “little golden book of chocolate”.
- 270g of butter
- 250g of sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 spoon of vanilla extract
- 500g of flour
- 1 pinch of salt
- 100g of chocolate
- 50g of coconut
Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth. Stir in egg and vanilla extract without over-doing it.
Add flour and a pinch of salt.
Put in a piping bag and form small heaps on a baking sheet and let cook for 10-15 minutes in the oven at 170°C (th. 6).
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Dip the cookies in it. Sprinkle shredded coconut over the warm chocolate.
Tip: You can replace the vanilla extract by vanilla sugar. For more aesthetic coating, you can spread the chocolate on the cakes with a silicone brush. And the cakes can be eaten plain.
