Coconut Cookies/ Kobbari Biscuttu

For this month's Blog Hop Wednesday, Radhika paired me with Smitha of kannada cuisine. She has a lot of authentic kannada recipes but I went through her bakes section. I saw these cookies and I knew I had to try them. I prepared these cookies twice. First I prepared it as per her instructions and my daughter loved them. But I was not satisfied because they came out flat and crumbly. I think I made a mistake while following the recipe. The next attempt, I did some changes in the recipe and the result was great. I used castor sugar instead of granulated sugar and used less vanaspathi. The cookies did melt in the mouth and full of coconut flavour.

Recipe Source: Smitha 
All Purpose Flour/ Maida-1cup
Castor Sugar-1cup
Dalda/ Vanaspathi/ Shortening-100gm

1. Preheat oven to 160C.
2. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and coconut and mix well.
3. Add vanaspathi and mix it to form a crumbly dough.
4. Take small portions of the dough and press it together to form a ball.
5. Place it on a lined baking tray.
6. Place the balls 1" apart.
7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the top is cracked and slighly brown in colour.
8. Allow it o cool completely before removing from the tray.

Make small balls out of the dough by pressing them tightly.
