Coconut Cookies

coconut cookies

These coconut cookies are mine and my hubby’s favorite cookies. They are absolutely delicious and melt in the mouth. I baked coconut cookies yesterday and only few of them are left today.
Recipe of coconut cookies/ biscuits
1 1/2 cup maida (all purpose flour/refined flour)
1 cup desiccated coconut
3/4 cup grinded sugar
4-5 tbsp unsalted butter or ghee (clarified butter)
3/4 tsp baking powder
1. Mix sugar in butter or ghee. Beat it till it gets lighter in color and fluffy.
2. Mix coconut and baking soda in all purpose flour.
3. Mix flour mixture in sugar-butter mixture. Turn it into dough. The dough would be crumbly.
4. Preheat oven to 180 degree C for 10 minutes.
5. Make small balls from the dough and flatten them between your palms. Line a baking tray with cookie sheet and grease it. Place these raw cookies on baking tray with some distance apart.
6. Bake them in the oven at 180 degree C for approx. 15 minutes or till they turn light brownish from the base. When hot, they will be soft to touch. Cool the coconut cookies completely before storing them in an airtight jar.
