Wheat And Coconut Cookies (savory)

Now I am going to post two savory cookie recipes in my cookie theme. This cookie recipe will fall under savory cookie recipes but it includes  a small amount of sugar also. That gives a salt and sweet taste but a very little sweet taste with coconut flavor. This recipe is from my mother, she used to make this recipe by deep frying the cookies. And my mother used to make them with maida, I changed it to wheat flour to give a healthy twist...

So now let's check the recipe....
INGREDIENTS:---
Wheat flour  ---  1 cup and 2 tab sp extra
Butter   ----  1/2 cup at room temperature (I used unsalted, can use salted also in that case reduce the salt amount which I gave in the ingredients)
Salt  ---  1/4 tea sp
Sugar  ---  1/4 cup
Cumin seeds  ---- 1 tab sp
Grated fresh coconut ----  1/2 cup
Baking powder  ----   1/4 tea sp
METHOD:---
1. Dry roast cumin seeds in a pan  till you get nice aroma from them and set a side.
2. In a mixing bowl take sugar and butter and beat till creamy.
3. Add flour, salt, cumin seeds, grated fresh coconut to the sugar and butter mixture and mix till all the ingredients comes together and form in to a dough.
4. Make small balls out of the dough and press a little bit to flat the cookies with a fork and sprinkle with little grated coconut . Place the cookies in a baking tray .
5. Preheat the oven 150 degree c for 10 minutes.
6. Place the cookie tray in the oven and bake at 150 degreeC for 10 to 12 minutes.
7. Remove from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack for some time.
Store this coconut and cumin flavored cookies in a air tight container.

It is nice that you were able to convert the recipe to a baked one and the cookies must be delicious with coconut - cumin combo. It is also interesting that the coconut version cookies are savory.
