Thank you so much to each and everyone of you who visited my blog, joined as a follower & left their valuable comments. I will be trying hard to catch up as soon as possible :)

Coconut Cookies
******************

Makes : 36 cookies


Ingredients :
  • 1 cup ghee ( clarified butter )
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 2 tbsp.  cornflour 
  • 1/2 tsp.  baking powder
  • 4 tbsp.  desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp.  vanilla essence
  • Extra desiccated coconut, for topping

Method :
  • Melt ghee in a pan or microwave, let it cool at room temperature. Then refrigerate ( or freeze ) until it starts to turn solid. Remove and bring to room temperature.
  • Preheat oven to 180 C. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Sieve flour, cornflour and baking powder in a bowl. Add desiccated coconut and keep aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat ghee and sugar until creamy.
  • Add vanilla essence and beat again.
  • Gradually work in the flour mixture, mixing with your hands until the dough comes together.
  • Divide the dough into equal sized balls, roll in extra coconut. Shape and flatten slightly with your palms. Keep pressing the edges to form a smooth cookie.
  • Arrange on the prepared baking sheet, 1" apart. Bake for 12 - 14 minutes until they turn golden.
  • Remove from oven and let cool on the baking sheet for a minute. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, then store them in an air-tight container.

  4. These cookies look scrumptious and so cute that you've shaped them into petals too! I love coconut - would be tempted to use butter instead but they'd probably not taste the same.
