Coconut Cookies

Almost an year ago a friend of mine from Singapore was explaining me the reason why she was sleepy during office hours. She stayed up all night baking breads & cookies for her family before holidays.

I asked “But we always buy these things, why didn't you?”
She laughed and said I bet you've never had home baked cookies before!

When I returned back home from that contract, the first thing I wanted to try baking were the cookies.

The first blog post is dedicated to the first baking experience which encouraged me to go ahead and bake more.

Following recipe was learnt from Rajul - Guide, mentor and a good friend.

Coconut Cookies


170 gms All Purpose Flour
115 gms Unsalted Butter
60 gms Granulated White Sugar
60 gms Condensed Milk
1 cup Desiccated Coconut
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/4tsp Baking Powder


Sieve the flour and baking powder in a small bowl. Cream the butter, sugar and condensed milk together until light and fluffy. Add Vanilla extract, flour and desiccated coconut mix lightly with hands until dough binds. Chill in fridge for few minutes.

On a lined baking tray, place small balls of dough and press down with a fork.

Bake at 350 degree F ( approx 170 degree C) till light brown in color. Remove and cool on wire rack.
