This is one of my Mom’s recipes. This is a very easy recipe to make. My brothers and I used to make this when we were little elementary schoolers. If I were to rename this cookie I would call it a quick cookie or something like that. It would take around 3 minutes to prepare this and 15 minutes to bake. And another nice thing about this cookie is that its an egg-less cookie. This cookie is for those of you who wants something quick & egg-less.


  • 7/8 Cup (100gm) All purpose flour
  • 1/4 Cup (60gm) Sugar
  • 7 tbsp (100gm) Butter/Margarine
  • 1/2 Cup (50gm) Dry coconut powder
  • 1 tsp Cardamom powder/Vanilla essence


  1. Knead all the ingredients together to a smooth and soft dough.
  2. Divide the dough into small equal portions( I made 24 cookies using this recipe).
  3. Arrange on a baking tray.
  4. Bake at 350 F for 15 minutes.
  5. Let the cookies cool and then serve.

    butter which one salted or unsalted and do we need to use baking powder in this .please ltell me as i m very curious to make these

      Rashmi, salted or unsalted butter will not make any noticeable difference. Unsalted is preferred in baking, but as long as your butter doesn’t have a strong salty taste you can use either kind. Use only the ingredients listed, baking powder isn’t used in this one.
