Recipe by Jubes

a no-cook recipe found on the side of a can of 'Golden Circle' crushed pineapple. THis recipe can easily be made suitable for a gluten-free diet by sing gf cookies- I used gluten-free 'Morning Tea' bickies. You can use any plain cookie similar to a Marie biscuit (US- can sub vanilla wafers). A good recipe for beginner children cooks to prepare

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 395 ml sweetened condensed milk
  • 450 g crushed pineapple, drained and squeezed

  1. In a large bowl, combine the biscuit crumbs, condensed milk, squeezed out pineapple and 1/2 cup shredded coconut. Mix well.
  2. Roll 4 teaspoons (Aussie tablespoon) of mixture in the remaining cup of shredded coconut to form neat balls and place in an airtight container. Repeat until all the mixture is used.
