Coconut Cookies are a favourite with everybody. From gourmet bakeries to roadside tea-stalls, everybody stocks this yummy cookie. With the inimitable crunch of desiccated coconut and the enticing aroma of butter, these delectable Eggless Coconut Cookies will be worthy company at tea-time !

A perfect mix of plain flour, semolina and coconut gives this pleasantly-sweet cookie the ideal texture. Allow these cookies to cool completely before tasting because they will be soft and slightly soggy while warm.
