Coconut-Brandy Snaps


Shredded coconut gives the classic tuile a tropical twist.

  • Yield: Makes about 20

Source: Martha Stewart Living, December 2006


  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup golden syrup, such as Lyle's
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Melt butter with the sugar and syrup in a small saucepan, stirring until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat; stir in brandy.

  2. Whisk flour, coconut, and salt in a bowl. Stir in butter mixture. Drop 1 1/2 teaspoons batter onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake until golden, 10 to 11 minutes. Let cool 3 minutes. Quickly use a spatula to lift cookies and drape them over a rolling pin; let set. If undraped cookies cool too quickly, reheat them in the oven for 30 seconds.

Cook's Notes

Cookies can be stored in airtight containers at room temperature up to 1 week.

    Well I am going to make this in the next 2 weeks. But I am just replying to the previous comment. Lyle's Golden syrup is pure cane syrup that has a buttery flavor. the King Arthur Flour site has it- 11 oz bottle - but you could google it & find out where else you could buy. It sounds very good & everybody loves it. I will have to try it for this recipe.
