These are one of my favorite childhood desserts. We got the recipe from Dona Idalina....a friend of ours, she actually made these to sell.
I haven't made them in years, but got a craving for coconut and just had to have them today. Just wait until you see how easy they are to make and just how delicious they are.
1 package Puff Pastry
1 cup of milk
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of coconut
sprinkle of vanilla essence
Powdered sugar for garnish
Unroll the sheets of puff pastry and cut each one into 9 squares.
Place on a cookie sheet bake in a 400º oven until done. Remove from oven and cool down completely.
In the meantime, in a pan, add the eggs, milk, sugar, coconut and a drop or two of vanilla essence.
Cook over medium heat until it thickens, remove from heat and allow to cool down.
Open each pastry square and add a tablespoon of the filling or a little more. Sometimes I overdo it just because I love it so much LOL
Cover back up and sprinkle with powdered sugar. YUM!
