"I fell in love with these Cuban Pastries while on vacation in Miami. I was so excited when I figured out how to duplicate them when I got home. For optimum quality, enjoy these pastries shortly after cooling, or on the same day they're baked."

1 (15.5 ounce) can

I am Cuban and I love these, one trick my mom uses is brush a little diluted apricot jam on top for glazing delightful yummy!!!!! This recipe also works with Guava Paste.
Easy peasy...made these with my toddler! Yummy...I didn't have canned grated coconut, I used orange flower water and golden syrup with some honey to wet the dry coconut...I added pine nuts...I tweak things...but I am sure the recipe is great by itself...it lends itself to creativity!
extremely simple.. Thanks for sharing
Difficult to find these ingredients in my area, but I made due. I used fillo dough, spread the layers with a diluted pineapple preserves mixture, and put a mixture of shredded coconut, honey, pina colada drink, and a splash of rum on the layers. I pulled the corners together and pressed to seal. My husband grabbed one right out of the oven and bit into it. He said the insides were like coconut napalm: very sticky, very coconut-y, but very delicious as well.
I once had these while visiting Puerto Rico. I had no idea how easy they were to make. Tasty little things and not too sweet. Thanks again for sharing!!! Reviewed during the Western region Allstar Faceless Frenzy 2012
