Snickerdoodles with Coconut Flour

P1190029

NOTE: I bought a bag of coconut flour, and I need to use it up before it expires. So…

Makes 18 cookies (two sheets)

INGREDIENTS:

1 c all purpose flour
1/3 c coconut flour
1/3 c milk or water (I used water)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick butter
3/4 c sugar
1 egg

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together.
  3. Cream butter and sugar in kitchenaid. Add eggs. Add dry ingredients. Roll into 2 in balls.
  4. Mix topping ingredients together in separate bowl.
  5. Roll cookie dough balls in topping mixture. Place on silpat lined cookie sheets.
  6. Bake 14 min.
  7. Enjoy!

NOTE: The dough tastes AMAZING!! Just like kopra pak (the Indian coconut dessert). The cookies came out pretty well. I think I like the plain Snickerdoodles better, but these were really good too.

NOTE2: The coconut flour is so small, but it screws up so much. Regular Snickerdoodles melt in your mouth. These are a horrible hard chewy texture. Even with the extra fluid, they are so dry. Yuck and yuck and yuck. I also did not use King Arthur Flour in this recipe. Makes a BIG difference to how the baking turns out. If anyone in your family has a cold, cooking with coconut flour will almost kill them, because the cookies stick in your throat in a most unpleasant way. This is the end of my cooking with coconut flour expedition. And my cooking without King Arthur Flour expedition. I learned the hard way and with great expense so you don’t have to. Vaya con dios.
