Eggless Coconut Cookies Recipe | How to Make Coconut Cookies – Vini’s

What are coconut cookies?

Coconut cookies are absolutely delgihtful cookies which are soft yet crumbly, having the crunch of desiccated coconut and loaded with coconut flavour. These cookies are pretty simple to make, they don’t ask for any baking powder or baking soda. Eggless coconut cookies can be served with milk or tea or can be packed beautifully and presented to someone.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Eggless Coconut Cookies Recipe

The recipe has no baking powder or baking soda. I, somehow feel when the recipes do not have these agents, their chances of going wrong are less. I mean what could you do wrong when you only have fat, sugar and flour to work with. I used yellow food Eggless Coconut Cookies Recipe colouring. But after preparing this batch I used turmeric powder instead of yellow food colouring and it gave me a nice yellow colour. So you can also use turmeric powder instead of colouring or completely omit any colour, they are born beauties and will look gorgeous anyway. You can also flavour it further with some cardamom powder or may be some saffron. I don’t want anything if I have coconut. However I just added little vanilla which enhanced the coconut flavour. Again to increase its beauty and give it a crunchy bite I coated my coconut cookies with some desiccated coconut. But if you feel , you can omit the coating part.

How To Make Eggless Coconut Cookies

4. Break the ghee and mix it with the sugar using a spoon or spatula initially and then use a electric beater. If you don’t mix it before using the electric beater, the sugar will fly everywhere.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
