Peanut Jagerry Coconut cookies

Back with another coconut cookies. I totally love coconut in cakes and cookies, it just makes everything so special! The combination is just perfect. I have used egg here which has also given a nice flavor to the cookies. Usage of jagerry and egg makes these cookies soft and chewy.

Ingredients

  • Peanuts 40 g
  • Desiccated coconut 20 g
  • Organic wheat flour 60 g
  • Organic jagerry 50 g
  • Egg 1
  • Butter 40 g
  • Cardamom 2
  • Pure vanilla extract 1 teaspoon

Method

  1. Grind the peanuts with the seeds of cardamom into coarse powder. Small bits of peanut taste good so no need to grind to fine powder.
  2. Cream the butter and grated jagerry well for about 5 minutes, can use hand beater.
  3. Add egg and vanilla extract, beat for about a minute.
  4. Add desiccated coconut and ground peanut, mix well with your hand.
  5. Add the whole wheat flour and form a dough, this will be a sticky dough. If it’s too sticky you may add little more flour.
  6. Cling wrap it and refrigerate for an hour for it to set well so that cookies can be made.
  7. Pinch small amount of the dough, flatten it slightly between your palm and place on the parchment lined baking tray.
  8. Bake in a pre heated oven at 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown in colour.
  9. Take the tray out and let the cookies remain on the tray for 10 minutes before shifting to wire rack for complete cooling.
  10. Store in an airtight container.

Notes

  • Baking time and temperature as per your oven.
  • You can make it eggless by using milk.
  • No need of vanilla extract if you are making eggless.
  • I just used my little finger to make impressions on the cookie, don’t they look cute? ๐Ÿ˜
