Bounty coconut cookies by the brand chef of KICA Academy Aleksandr Trofimenkov are made with only two textures: coconut ganache and baked Sable Breton. Simple in preparation, yet very delicious and elegant, these cookies are great for both home treats and big pastry production.

During the preparation you will learn:

The preparation will start with the classic recipe of chocolate Sable Breton. Crunchy and flavorful dough with a rich chocolate texture will be the base of our recipes for coconut cookies. It is the basic recipe, that you could save and use with other fillings and tastes.

Then we will make a fragrant coconut ganache for filling the coconut cookies. Thanks to the desiccated coconut and coconut puree in the ganache we get the maximum coconut flavor and texture.

As a coating for cookies with coconut, we will use tempered milk chocolate. The such coating creates a smooth and attractive surface and brings an additional deep chocolate taste.

To make the decoration simple and elegant we will use the same tempered chocolate to create an artistic pattern. Then we will sprinkle the lines with roasted desiccated coconut, to make the coconut taste more recognizable.
