Coconut Cookies (Eggless) 

Coconut Cookies (Eggless)  


Adapted from Ruchiskitchen 

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup Maida
1/4 tsp Baking soda/eno fruit salt 
1/4 tsp Baking powder
1 cup Unsweetend desiccated Coconut / shredded and toasted fresh coconut 
1/2 cup Butter
10 tbsp Powdered Sugar
3-5 tsp Milk
Few drops of  Vanilla essence

METHOD:

1. Preheat oven at 180° c. 
2. Sieve maida with baking powder and baking soda. 
3. In a bowl, mix sugar and butter. Add the coconut. 
4. Add vanilla essence and milk. 
5. Now slowly add in the maida mixture little by little to form a dough.
6. Divide the dough into 20 portions and roll it to balls and flatten them slightly (1 cm thick). 
7. Place it on a greased and floured baking tray and bake it for 15-20 mins or till golden brown on top. 

MY TIPS:

1. For this recipe, my 1 cup measures 240 ml
2. I used shredded and toasted fresh coconut and eno fruit salt. 
3. You can make the cookies in different shapes using a cookie cutter. 


Update (12th Feb, 2017):

Made the cookies again today, tried a change in shaping the cookie. After rolling the dough into balls, flatten it slightly and make a finger impression at the centre gently, just half-way through and then bake it.  The cookies came out baked in almost perfect round shape.
