200 gr. confectioners' sugar

4 tbsp corn oil
4 tbsp any gf cake flour you like
(white rice flour/ cornstarch, potato starch, or any ready commercial baking mix...)
400 gr. flacked coconut
In a large mixing bowl combine the sugar with the oil and the milk. Add the flour and whisk until well combined, add the coconut. Stir well with a wooden spoon.
Shape a small balls from the batter. Pour onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake about 20-25 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack, because when the balls are still warm are very soft and it's very easy to break them. When the cookies are cooled, pour each into a small paper cups and serve with a cup of coffee!
You can add a toasted hazelnut in the center of each cookie when you shape the balls.
Number of Servings: 24

How is this gluten free if you are using cake flour? Isn't that just a finer grind of wheat flour? - 8/9/09

Hi, I'm sorry for this mistake, there is no baking powder added in this recipe. I probabbly wrote it automatically in the directions,thinking of the other recipes I wanted to post too, but I was in a hurry and I had no time to add the others. Thanks for noticing mi this mistake, I'll edit it.
