                Hi friends, WELCOME TO AYESHA'S KITCHEN. Today let me share you the recipe of an egg less crunchy coconut cookies which i inspired from one of my blog friend Ruchi. First of all let me thank her for this lovely recipe with a crunchy crust and soft chewy cookie inside. I used to bake only cakes and breads. This is my first try on cookies and OMG feel very happy that i could make it..It turns out to be very delicious. 
                     A very simple recipe for the starters in baking with less ingredients. Those who loves cookies, this is a must try homemade cookie recipe and will never go for bakery cookies any more once you tasted the goodness of this cookies. Here, i used desiccated coconut and u can substitute it with grated coconut as well ( just microwave grated coconut  for 5 minutes for drying out the moisture content ). Hope you all will love my first attempt in cookie baking and for sure will try  and share more and more interesting cookie recipes.  Please don't forget  to leave your valuable feedback.
