TRINIDADIAN SUGAR COOKIES

Ingredients:

4 cups grated coconut
1 Cup water
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon almond flavoring
Few drops of food coloring (very few or you'll have fluorescent!)

Cooking Instructions:

1. Boil sugar and water to form a light syrup.

2. When bubbles the size of small pearls appear, add grated coconut and cream of tartar.

3. When the coconut mixture comes away from the sides of the pan easily, remove from heat and beat with a spoon for 3-5 minutes.

4. Add essence and food coloring and mix well.

5. Drop by spoonfuls on an oiled cookie or enamel tray.

6. Allow to harden completely.

7. Store in an airtight container.

Additional Comments:

You can divide the mixture into batches before Step 4 and add a different color to each batch. It looks really pretty in a glass cookie jar after its finished. In spite of the high sugar content, this is a really popular snack with parents for the kids. It's quick & easy. There aren't any preservatives.
