 Ingredients List

  • 3 oz Part skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 c Nonfat dry milk
  • 1/4 c Sugar; plus 1 tablespoon
  • 1/4 c Unsweetened shredded coconut


Grease an 8×8 inch square pan. Set aside. In a large, nonstick fry pan heat
ricotta cheese on medium heat. Add milk powder and stir to mix thoroughly.
Cook for 12-15 minutes until most of the liquid is evaporated. Stir
frequently to avoid sticking or burning on the bottom. Add sugar and stir.
The ricotta cheese mixture will become liquid again. Cook for another 5
minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the coconut and mix thoroughly.
Continue to cook for 3-5 minutes. The mixture should be quite thick. Pour
the mixture into the greased pan and press the mixture with a spatula. Cut
into 1×1 inch diamond shapes. The mixture sets as it cools. Cool completely
before removing from the pan.
