Coconut Almond Cookie

Cookies anyone ?? A mix of coconut and almond enriches the taste of this cookie.

Ingredients

1 cup - All purpose flour
3/4 cup - Almond powder ( not very fine powder, a bit coarsely powdered without the skin )
1/2 cup - Fresh coconut, finely grated
1/2 cup - Unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup - Sugar
Few Almond slivers for decorating

Method

1 ) In a mixing bowl, mix and the ingredients together to form a dough. Preheat oven at 350 F.

2 ) Make small balls of the dough, flatten and place them on baking tray. Leave some space between them. Place a almond sliver in the middle of the dough and gently press in.

3 ) Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, till the bottom of the cookie turns light golden in color. Cookie will be soft to touch, but will harden as it cools.

4 ) Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.

Serve as a snack.
