Coconut Cookies Comeback

Coconut Cookies | Photography and Styling by Sanda Vuckovic | Little Upside Down Cake
These are 80’s cookies.
My memories of them really fit in a decade of weird haircuts and clothes with big shoulders.
And not just that… I know exactly when did I ate them almost every day: on our vacations at the Adriatic sea.

Well… let me explain. We’d always spend a few weeks of the summer at the Adriatic sea, Croatia to be more specific.
My parents, belonging to the working class, did everything to spend these few weeks on the coast once a year, but that had to include my mum baking and cooking a few weeks before, to bring as much food as we can and cut costs.
So, coconut cookies were on the list. She would make a big quantity since they get even better by time and these would be stars of our days at the beach.

Even these memories are great. I thought these cookies deserve a comeback, with a big announcement and loud music on the background. Let’s bake them again!!!

Estas são cookies dos anos 80.
As minhas memórias delas encaixam-se na perfeição numa década de cortes de cabelo estranhos e roupas com grandes ombros.
E não é apenas isso… eu sei exactamente quando as comi quase todos os dias: nas nossas férias no mar Adriático.

Bem… deixem-me explicar. Nós passavamos sempre algumas semanas do verão no mar Adriático, na Croácia para ser mais específica.
Os meus pais, pertencentes à classe trabalhadora, faziam de tudo para passar estas semanas na costa uma vez por ano, mas tinha de incluir a minha mãe a assar e cozinhar algumas semanas antes, para trazer tanta comida quanto possível e reduzir custos.
Assim, os biscoitos de coco estavam na lista. Ela fazia uma quantidade enorme, uma vez que ficavam ainda melhor pelo tempo, e estes seriam as estrelas dos nossos dias na praia.

Até estas memórias são fantásticas. Eu imaginei que estas cookies mereciam um regresso, com um grande anúncio e música alta de fundo. Vamos fazê-las novamente!!!

    Childhood memories make everything taste even better. Coconut cookies on the way (maybe they will take me on holidays to the Adriatic Coast???)
