Baking is one of my hobbies and it gives lots of happiness when I bake something which me and my family enjoy the most. Coconut cookies are one among them.


It is so nostalgic as it reminds me of my childhood when we used to get it in nearby bakeries and gets to eat it often as a special cookie. If you like coconut, then you must try this recipe. It is full of coconut flavors and very easy and simple to make.


You can enjoy it with a warm cup of coffee or tea. It's also kids favourite so can be shared in lunch box or as a light snack.

I am sharing the Egg less version with mild sweetness perfect for 15-17 cookies. The sweetness can be adjusted by adding extra sugar to it.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup all purpose flour

  • 1/2 Cup desiccated coconut

  • 5 tbsp ghee

  • 3 - 4 tbsp milk

  • 5 tbsp powdered sugar

  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 2-3 drops of Vanilla essence

Steps:

  1. Line the baking tray with Baking paper.

  2. Preheat the oven at 180C.

  3. Add ghee, sugar, salt and vanilla essence to the stand mixer and mix well until soft peak.

  4. Add desiccated coconut and baking powder to it. Mix well.

  5. Add flour and milk to make a soft dough.

  6. The quantity of milk varies to make a dough. Add accordingly.

  7. Make small balls and slightly flatten them.

  8. Brush milk on top.

  9. Sprinkle desiccated coconut and granulated sugar on it.

  10. Bake in Preheated oven at 180 C for 15 mins

  11. Remove them from oven and let it stand to cool it.

  12. Enjoy your cookies.


Additional tips:

  1. These cookies will be great for a week in a sealed container.

  2. Ghee can be replaced with unsalted/salted butter.

  3. If salted butter is been used then salt should not be used in the recipe.

Zentangle is an American method of drawing invented by a monk named Rick Roberts and an artist named Maria Thomas. They created an art form with a combination of art and meditation.


It is a very fun and relaxing abstract art. It offers structured drawing patterns and shapes. Patterns are known as tangles and shapes are Elemental strokes. It is different from other art forms as it can be anything as there are no fixed motifs. You can start and finish with anything that comes in your mind. There is nothing wrong or right in this art form. This is directly made from pen,so mistakes can happen and this art form teaches to accept the flaws nicely. However, beginners can use pencil to draw the outlines and designs to fill the same.


This art form is also called for artistic meditation. It provides a sense of calmness and peace. It helps to heal many disorders including sleep, stress, anxiety etc. It enhances focus and relaxation to create mindfulness.

It is often drawn by black fineliners or markers on 9 x 9 cm white square paper. The paper used for drawing is called a tile because completed tiles can be arranged together in a beautiful mosaic. It's a very simple art form and requires the least of things to do it, just a pen and paper with thoughts in mind.



I am sharing a few zentangle patterns done on white A4 sheet with Sharpie and fineliner pens.
