Coconut Cookies

These coconut cookies are very easy to make but  full of flavour. Coconut can be a very interesting ingredient if used innovatively. I have made cookies before, generally, filled with jam, chocolate or laden with cream and chocolate chips. I had not made cookies for a long time and was missing one of my favorite snacks- cookies! So, I thought of making these cookies topped with cherries. Do try out these cookies! Let them melt in your mouth!  (And don't forget to comment or subscribe!! Njoy!)

Coconut Cookies


  • Maida/All purpose flour - 3cups/300gms
  • Butter - 250 gms
  • Powdered sugar - 150 gms
  • Coconut powder - 300 gms
  • Cardamom powder / Vanilla essence- 1 tsp
  • Glazed Cherries - 125 gms
  • Crystal sugar( normal refined sugar) - 5tsp
  • Pinch of salt


1. Beat butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
2. Sieve maida and salt. Mix all the ingredients together and knead into a soft dough.
3. Refrigerate the dough for around 30 minutes.   
4. Roll the dough and cut it into the shape of small cookies with the help of a biscuit cutter. If you don't have the cutter simply roll out small balls from the dough and pierce them with the help of fork.
5. Preheat the oven for 10 mins. Place the cookies on baking tray and bake at 170 degree C for 25 mins.
6. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for about 10 mins. Remove to wire racks to cool down completely.
7. Garnish with cherries and serve with tea or coffee.
