Who Else Want’s Crisp Coconut Cookies?
The coconut tree (Cocos nucifera) is a member of the palm tree family (Arecaceae) and the only living species of the genus cocos. The term “coconut” (or the archaic “cocoanut“) can refer to the whole coconut palm, the seed, or the fruit, which botanically is a drupe, not a nut. The name comes from the old Portuguese word coco, meaning “head” or “skull”, after the three indentations on the coconut shell that resemble facial features. They are ubiquitous in coastal tropical regions and are a cultural icon of the tropics.
Who Else Want’s Crisp Coconut Cookies? I knew it, so get baking and you will be able to enjoy them soon.
- Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
- Add eggs one at a time.
- Sift flour, and salt and add to butter and sugar mixture and coconut.
- Add vanilla essence.
- Shape the dough into small balls and roll them into castor sugar and place the side up with the castor sugar (I rolled the whole ball in the sugar and pressed it flat).
- Bake in a preheated oven of 180C / 350F for 12-15 minutes.
