Coconut Cookies

Another favorite of mine for this festive season is Coconut Cookies.  These lightly toasted coconut which is in the dough brings in the flavor when you put it in your mouth.


250gm butter
2 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
125gm desicated coconut (lightly toasted)
1 egg yolk
1/2 cup sugar
vanilla essence
Cherries (I did not have any on hand)


  • Lightly beat butter and sugar.  Add egg yolk, salt and vanilla.  Mix well.
  • Add flour and cornstarch. ( Do not add all flour at once, sometimes the dough will be slightly thick depending on humidity). Lastly add the toasted coconut.
  • Roll the dough and use cookie cutter. Top with cherries.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes.
