Chocolaty, coconutty, sesamed cookies- ideal with a sip of coffee.

Baking is truly my weakness. I will even compromise my sleep hours to get time for baking wonderful food stuffs. I thought of combining my very favorite three ingredients- chocolate flavor, sesame, and coconut in ordinary cookies mix to get a wonderful, exceptionally good flavored food item which you can boast to be a signature creation in baking. If you have children in your house, then you will love baking immensely as you need to prepare items for their Tiffin box. It’s my favorite ‘Chocolaty, Coconutty, sesamed cookies’. Try this at your home and I bet your child will love it forever. Let’s share the secret of this magic recipe with all my readers.

Ingredients: (for preparing 30 pieces)

Self raising white flour (300 gms.),
Margarine/unsalted butter (150 gms.),
Sugar (150 gms.), 
Desiccated coconut (50 gms.), 
Sesame seeds (20 gms.), 
Liquid chocolate/Drinking chocolate powder (about 5 teaspoons),

Equipments used:
Brush (for putting oil),

Procedure: The preparation of cookies is demonstrated in a schematic way with the help of diagrammatic representation.

Step 1: Prepare dough of self raising white flour, sugar, margarine and keep it standing for 15 minutes.

Step 2: Take a part of the dough and put liquid chocolate/drinking chocolate powder and keep the two doughs separate and place parallel to each other.

Step 3: Twist the doughs together and make them smooth.

Step 4: For convenience place them in a polythene sheet and roll evenly and keep if refrigerated condition for 30 minutes.

Step 5: Take the dough out from the polythene sheet and cut into equal circular pieces.

Step 6: Take a bowl and mix the desiccated coconuts, sesame seeds together. Spread the mix evenly on each circular dough and places them on the tray of the oven which will be given for heating.

Step 7: Pre heat the oven at 180 degree Celsius and place the cookies at equal distance on the tray. Put little oil on the tray before so as to make the tray greased. Use the spatula to place the circular doughs at equal distances. Bake at 120 degree Celsius for 25 minutes and the cookies are ready.

Step 8: Remove the cookies and keep them in open air for cooling down.

You may store then in a cool place and in a tough container in order to restore the crispiness. Cookies taste nice along with coffee and it can be a very good Tiffin box item for your child. Next time whenever you have a childrens' party at your house try this item and see the smiles at the faces of your young guests.
