|Coconut Square Cookies|
I also make some Chocolate Piped Cookies and two more to share which will be up tomorrow!
Off these go for my Cookie Mela
All purpose Flour / Maida - 1 and 1/2 cup
Butter - 150 gms
Fresh Coconut, grated - 1 cup
Salt a pinch
Icing sugar - 1 cup
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
How to make the Coconut Square Cookies
Grate the coconut and microwave for 2 mins with one minute interval. This will make sure the coconut is dried up.
In a bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until the mix is very creamy. Shift the flour together with baking powder and salt.
Slowly add to the bowl and continue creaming. If the dough is thick, knead with your hands. Add milk if required.
Grease a rolling board with greased rolling pin. Pat on the sides to make sure you get a square. Cut into small squares.
Meanwhile pre heat the oven at 185 Deg C. Once done, arrange the squares with enough space on the tray and bake at 185" C for 15 mins. Start at 12 mins and continue for the next 3 mins if required. I had to complete the entire 15 mins.
Allow to cool before digging in.
The coconut I used was enough to give a good coconut taste. The ones you get in the bakery is really loaded with coconut. For that effect you can increase by another half cup of coconut.
