Coconut Candy crochet cap

Hi,

I know the name I picked for this cap may sound a bit funny for those of you who do not know the Brazilian culture, we adore coconut.

In general I mean. There are plenty of coconut trees along side our beaches and in many lucky people’s yards not necessarily on the coast side of the country. Despite the abundance of coconuts, seldom of us can go grab them… It’s not like you are born with the Tarzan and Jane skills.

We get the fruit (still green) at a local market, sometimes at coconut stands, where you get to pick one have it opened for you, take a seat drink its water with the help of a straw, and later on in case you want to eat the inside, you can always have them open it for you. It is nice, healthy and refreshing.

When the coconut is already brown on the outside and its “water” gains a different consistancy, but yet delicious taste, we crack it open it or by it already opened and we are able to make all sorts of food from rice, chicken, fish etc, to the most heavenly cakes, icing, candies… I love them all. Coconut candies may be white or brown, crunchy or just soft enough to be eaten with a spoon, make it a tablespoon the more the better.

Having that said, now you know how much I love it, I show you this little adorable creation, my Coconut Candy crochet cap as sweet to me as the candy can be.

Hope you like it,

Brazilian Lime Pie – welcome recipe

Hello again, I would like to apologize for this lack of posts!

Here  I am with what I consider one of the fastest and yet most delicious Brazilian pies. I hadn’t done it for many years but when I was to take a dessert to celebrate New Years Day at a friend’s house it popped in my mind, ever since I have made it 3 times more, so take a chance to try it and after that tell me what you think of it. Let me know if you need any help with the recipe!

Have a great day!

Drikka.

Brazilian Lime Pie:

8-10 servings

oven= pre-heat for about 15 minutes at 350 F or 180C.

Ingredients for the dough:

2 cups of all purpose flour

5 tablespoons full of unsalted butter

a pinch of salt

3 tablespoon full of  white sugar

6 tablespoons full of raw milk

1 tablespoon full of baking powder

Ingredients for the Lime Filling:

1 can of sweet condensed milk

3/4 of cup of the juice of 4 limes.

5 tablespoon of milk

Topping:

2 egg white

4 tablespoon full white icy sugar

Mix the ingredients initially with a spoon and then with your hands read finger tips, just enough to make them a kind of tough soft dough.

Place the dough on an 8 in. baking pan.

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 F or 180 C for 10 minutes. Turn off the oven do not remove the baking pan.

Prepare the lime filling, just take all the ingredients and blend it for 3 minutes in the medium speed. Spread all over the baked dough.

Beat the white eggs until they reach glossy peaks, gently add the icy sugar as you vigorously keep on beating the white eggs.

When you finished adding the sugar, spread the white eggs evenly on top of the lime filling.

Bake the pie for more 10 minutes or until the white eggs become slightly brown.

Let it cool down and refrigerate before eating.
