well, to be honest, i am not a huge fan of baking cookies at home and i personally like to buy it from local bakeries. but i always get a lot of requests to make some homemade baked biscuits or cookies recipes. particularly i get for more of eggless recipes as most of the store bought do contain egg in it. traditionally egg yolks are added to cake or cookie batter to make it moist, creamy and also to hold the shape. the same can be achieved by adding ingredients like baking soda and baking powder. to be honest, i feel these artificial agents may not be the same match to egg yolks. but still a great alternative to making an eggless coconut cookies recipe.

furthermore some important tips and suggestions with variations to make a perfect coconut cookies recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have used wheat flour to make it a healthy biscuit recipe. but from a taste wise, it tastes great when made with plain flour or maida atta. secondly, i have baked these cookies in old pressure cooker and not in a traditional oven. while you can bake it oven or otg at 180 degree celcius for 15 minutes, but if you are using the cooker, use old and not new pressure cooker. potentially you may spoil the cooker and hence use accordingly. lastly, do not use freshly grated coconut for this recipe and use desiccated coconut as directed. it should be dry and moisture free while mixing it with cookie batter.
