Name that cookie! Mexican macaroon?

cjla | Nov 12, 2003 06:27 PM


I have been happily eating burritos at my neighborhood Mexican place, and have added a cookie to my regular order. Its small, extremely sweet and dense, and seems to be almost all coconut and sugar? molasses?

I'm not shy, but I don't speak Spanish, and the employees don't speak a whole lotta English. (And the place is always noisy and busy.) I'm tired of pointing through the glass and saying "And I'll have one of those, please."

I live in southern California, if that helps place it.

If anyone could help, I'd like the name and the correct pronunciation. Thank you!
