Coconut and Mix Berries Cookies

Cookies are the best mate for teatime, specially the evening tea. For me cookies are anytime friend, even when I'm not in mood for breakfast or dinner. Adding some berries and coconut makes them more delish. I always keep some berry mix in my pantry to make such little goodies to pamper my family.

This berry mix has cranberries, golden raisin, black raisin, inca berries, cherries, blueberries, and bing cherries. Mix of sweet and sour taste of berries gave the cookies different taste. The subtle earthy taste of coconut is liked by almost everyone.

My family enjoys these cookies with their tea and coffee. Kids love them as a snack with their flavoured milk. Easy and quick recipe for them makes it hassle free. You can use any berries you have at home. I used wheat flour to make these cookies but it can be replaced with APF/Maida.

Milk                                          - 1/4 cup to as required

Line a baking tray with non-stick paper/mat.
In a stand mixer / mixing bowl, Sift flour, baking powder, Baking Soda and Salt.
Add in the Sugar, Fine desiccated Coconut and Butter.

Start mixing on low speed / rub it with hands.
Once the flour starts to look like crumble add in the berries, mix well.
Now add the milk and gently for the shape of dough. Do not knead it like Chapati dough.

Make small balls out of dough and flatten them a little.
Place them all on baking tray and chill for 30 minutes.

Pre heat the oven on 180c and bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes or until the sides starts to get a little golden.
You can keep them a little more (only 2 more minutes) , if you want a bit crunchy cookies.
Once baked to your choice of crunch take them out on cooling rack to cool them completely.
These cookies go very well with evening tea , coffee and milkshake.
These are my favourite cookies for reading time tea.
Kids will also love the sourness of berries and sweetness of coconut.
