Coconut Raisin Butter Cookies

Time pass real fast and I didn't realise my last post was in October 2016. 

Today I'm posting this Coconut Raisin Butter Cookies which is so good that I have to share it out with you!
This cookies are very similarly to the Danish butter cookies !  You really got to try this out and I know you will definitely love this!

Recipe sourced from Victoria Bakes


150g butter
100g icing sugar, sifted 
40g egg yolk 
6g vanilla extract
200g cake flour 
20g potato starch 
40g coconut cream powder 
1 tsp baking powder 
40g freshly grated coconut 
60g raisins (Soaked with hot water for at least 5 mins, then pat dry. Using your kitchen scissors, snip into small pieces)


Sift the cake flour, potato starch, coconut cream powder and baking powder together.  Set aside.

Cream the butter and icing sugar till pale and fluffy.
Add in egg yolk and the vanilla paste and beat till well incorporated.
Add in the sifted mixture; roughly stir to combine.
Add in the grated coconut and raisins.  Fold in all well together.  Chill the dough at least 30 minutes.

Preheat your oven to 160C. 

Using a teaspoon, place small mounds of the mixture well apart on the baking trays.  (Or you may use your ice cream scoop to spoon out the batter and shape it round).

Place the baking trays in the centre rack of your oven and bake for 20 - 25 minutes. 
(I baked my cookies for 20 minutes and off the oven; I let the cookies in the oven for another 10 minutes.  This will make the cookies more crispy and crunchy).
(Feel free to adjust to your baking taste accordingly).
