Coconut shortbread cookies

Since, my Coconut Macarons post viewed my many thought of posting one more Coconut based recipe but this time cookie. Also, my son wants something more than the shortbread cookies. 

This is another experiment project. But, it turned out very tasty and crisply cookie.

The Ingredients list :   1 cup of All purpose (AP) flour  or Wheat flour    ;    ¼ cup of Sugar     ;   110 gms of soft butter   ;   2tsp of corn flour ;   1/8 cup of  desiccated coconut    ;   Pinch of  Salt    ;      1/4 tsp of Cardamom powder

Beat butter with sugar till it turns into pale in color. Add cardamom powder and mix well.

In a separate bowl, mix the AP flour, corn flour, salt and slowly add the flour mixture into the butter-sugar mixture and blend well till all combined well.
Shape the dough into ball shape and roll it in to log shape for about 6 inch’s length then brush with milk on sides of dough and roll it on the desiccated coconut. Make sure the coconut coated on the all sides of the dough.

Cover the coated dough tightly with cling wrap and keep it in the fridge for about 30 to 45 min. 

Cut the log shaped dough in to ½" thickness by knife and arrange it in baking tray. Transfer the baking tray in 180°C pre heated oven for about 20 - 25 min.

Allow it to cool and transfer into Air tight container.
