Eggless Almond Coconut Cookies


A new post for all those people who like me, love to much something yummy while they work or
just lazying around....a great snack for kids......Eggless Almond Coconut Cookies!

I am a big fan of coconut cookies. Loved them when I tried long back at Iyengar's Bakery. Wanted to make the cookies like those but since they are just plain coconut cookies thought of adding almond flavor to it too.
Recently I have started using this MTR Badam Drink mix and I am in love it!
I tried my Almond Kulfi with it and they were a hit!

These cookies also turned out a hit and trust me more than anyone I ate half of them...so I had to make another batch for others! :) :)
Kids would love them,no doubt,as these cookies have almond and coconut flavor in it.

Try these and enjoy!

  • 1/4th Cup - 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 1/4th Cup Clarified Butter / Ghee
  • 3/4th Cup Granulated Sugar / Caster 
  • 1/4th Cup - 2 Tablespoons Milk
Instructions
Preheat the oven at 180c / 356f.
To begin with,in a mixing bowl add the butter and ghee.
Mix well.
Make sure that the butter and ghee are at room temperature.
Now to this add the maida,almond powder,sugar,salt,dessicated coconut.
Mix well.
This mixture will be of crumbly texture initially.
Now slowly add the milk and start making a soft dough.
Do not knead the dough like chapati dough.
Mix it with soft hands.
Now on a baking tray,place the parchment paper/butter paper.
Make small round dough balls.
Place the balls on the baking tray with some space in between them for the cookies to grow.
Bake the cookies at 160c / 320f for 15 minutes or till they are slightly brownish on the top.
Let them cool completely.
Store them in an airtight container.
Enjoy with tea!

Tips:

  • If you do not find  MTR badam Mix or any other Almond milk mix,try making homemade almond powder.
  • Add a little elaichi powder / cardamom powder to the dough to give extra flavor.
  • Do not knead the dough. This dough will be very soft.
  • Leave sufficient space in between the dough balls for the cookies to grow or they will stick to each other and loose the shape.
  • I used granulated sugar here. I tried making these cookies with powdered sugar too. In both the cases the final outcome is good but granulated sugar cookies gave a nice crunch to them
  • Choice is yours to use powdered or granulated sugar.
  • Bake them as per your oven temperature till done.






ENjoy!

  1. Don't we need to flatten the balls of dough before baking?
