Ingredients

  • 3 Cups flaked coconut
  • 2 Cups pecans, chopped
  • 2 Cups sugar
  • 1/2 Cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1/2 Cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 Cup light corn syrup
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract, such as McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon, such as McCormick® Cinnamon, Ground

Directions

Mix coconut and pecans in large bowl. Set aside.

Mix sugar, butter, sweetened condensed milk, and corn syrup in large saucepan. Bring to boil on medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. Boil without stirring about 10 minutes or until mixture reaches 240 degrees F on a candy thermometer and is deep caramel in color.

Pour mixture over coconut and pecans in bowl. Stir in vanilla and cinnamon. Let stand 5 minutes or until mixture is slightly cooled and thickened, stirring occasionally. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto wax paper-lined baking sheets. Press gently with bottom of glass to flatten slightly. Cool at room temperature for 1 hour. Cover with a clean kitchen towel. Let stand overnight to dry out cookies.

Coconut Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Coconut Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
