We all grew up loving this Pinoy-style dessert treat. Give it a modern spin by adding slightly tart and sweet pineapple!

Makes about 30 pieces

1 (500-gram) can crushed
      pineapple, including syrup
1 cup sugar
3 cups desiccated coconut
3 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1  Place pineapple and sugar in a sauté pan over low heat. Stir constantly until syrup has evaporated and pineapple begins to caramelize. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Add desiccated coconut; combine. Add egg whites and vanilla extract; mix well.

2  Drop by tablespoonfuls on a lightly greased baking sheet, leaving 1-inch spaces between. Bake in a preheated 350ºF oven for 13 to 15 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
