  • * Use ½ cup ‘Less’ of all-purpose flour & 1 ½ Egg (whole egg + yolk) for softer cookies.

    HandS Grated Coconut Kernel

Toast HandS Fresh Grated Coconut to bring out flavor. Spread coconut in a thin layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 350°F/180°C for 8~10 minutes until golden brown. Remove toasted coconut & close oven properly to conserve heat – reducing energy requirement for later cookie baking. Line pans with parchment paper and keep ready.

Using a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt – then set aside. Beat the butter, eggs (one at a time) and both sugars till well mixed & soft – texture should be light and fluffy (mixer bowl with paddle attachment is preferred). Add mixed flour and vanilla extract as you continually beat – then add in the toasted coconut kernel (setting aside ¼ cup for coating cookie) – follow ingredient addition steps properly to get a good dough mix.

Roll dough into balls, using about 1½ tbs of dough per cookie – dab balls in ¼ cup of toasted coconut we kept aside. Place balls on baking sheet & press down lightly to shape. Bake at 350°F/180°C for 9~12 minutes till edges start to brown. Do not over bake cookies as they will turn hard. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 8~10 minutes, before transferring to wire rack to cool completely. Store in air tight container at ambient room temperature for up to 3 days, or cookies can be frozen up to 2 months. Always serve warm!
