Ingredients

  • ½ lb. fresh grated cocoanut.
  • Whites 1½ eggs.
  • 6 oz. sugar and glucose, using one mixing-spoon glucose.
  • German Confectioner.

    Method

    Cook cocoanut, sugar and glucose, in double boiler until mixture clings to spoon, add whites of eggs, stir vigorously, and cook until mixture feels sticky when tried between the fingers. Spread in a wet pan, cover with wet paper, and chill on ice. Shape in small balls, first dipping hands in cold water. Bake twenty minutes in a slow oven on a tin sheet greased with white wax.
