Christmas Coconut Cookies

Aww dear!! December has already started for a while and I haven’t posted any Bredele (aka Christmas cookies) recipe!! Please forgive me…

So, I will share a really (really really) good one!! My Christmas coconut cookies!!

I won’t write a long speech to discribe those amazing cookies …

It is based on a basic shrotbread cookie recipe, prepared with coconut powder that will be roasted in a frying pan.

As always, you will need to have 2 hours resting time in the fridge for the pastry (it is always a good advice for any kind of pastry for tarts, quiches, etc…). Cold is the pastries best friend… 😉

Then you shape your cookies as moon crescents, you spread coconut powder and you bake!!

The main issue here: having to wait for the Christmas coconut cookies to cool down before tasting them. A task harder than it seems since you will have a delicious coconut smell all over your kitchen!!

The utensils:

My kMix foodprocessor for a pastry ready in 2 minutes (it works too without food processor)

My Affinity frying pan by De Buyer

and that’s it!!

Shoo! In the kitchen!

The recipe, Chef!
