A gift for Father’s Day: Coconut pastries with hazelnuts

Father’s Day is a diffuse celebration around the world; Although in Spain and Italy (and in other European countries), for the great Catholic influence, is celebrated on March 19, the day of Saint Joseph, there are many other countries in the world that celebrate it the third Sunday in June; Just as I did on Mother’s Day, today I propose a sweet but delicious recipe that is well accompanied by any gift: it is a cup of coconut and hazelnut so easy to prepare that even the youngest can prepare them for their Daddies.
