Bake Buko Pandan Cookies

Buko and Pandan are Filipino words. Translated, Buko is coconut and Pandan is screwpine. Both of these are native products from the Philippines. Since the people in the Philippines are resourceful and naturally experimental with their foods, we see many recipes which are not duplicated in other areas.

They have conjured up a special cookie that is both delicious and exotic at the same time. Buko Pandan cookies are not just ordinary cookies. I only recently got wind of these delectable cookies. I am an avid baker myself, which is why, when I saw the recipe for screwpine coconut cookies I didn’t think twice before trying out the recipe.

Do not waste another second - try out Buko Pandan cookies and I bet you’ll like them as well!

You can bake them just for recreational purposes, or since the recipe is fairly new and not a lot of people are making them, you could even turn this into a small business and the startup capital would be minimal. Follow the recipe below, and do your magic.
