Danish cookies ( coconut flavor )

As a heartlander kid, this cookie was considered a high end snob snack. Instead , my PAP kindergarten snacks came in  round disks, aka the Marie biscuit, always accompanied by a melamine mug of Milo. Then there was the  occasional animal biscuits as treats for us kids, but never anything like this.

Thinking about it, it was unbelievable that I only got to eat Danish cookies only when I was able to earn my keep. Perhaps I did not know what I missed and therefore never considered myself  deprived of  such delicious cookies. Had I known that  it tasted so good, I would have driven mum crazy asking her for it.

Adapted from food-4tots   with modifications.

Makes about 30 small cookies

Ingredients :

65g butter, unsalted
50g icing sugar
60g cake flour
40g plain flour
10g corn flour
20g desiccated coconut

Method :
Prepare a lined tray. Preheat oven to 160C.
Mix flours and coconut in a bowl. Set aside. Cream butter and sugar.
In 3 batches, whisk in flours and coconut until just combined.
Using a teaspoon , scoop equal portions of dough, the size of your thumb nail.
Make a ball , put on the tray and flatten slightly.
Bake at 160C for 15 minutes. Leave the cookies to cool in the oven, slightly ajar, for another 5-10 minutes.
Cool further on a rack before removing them from the grease paper.
