Homemade cacao-coconut cookies are delicious with tea, coffee or as cake decoration.
I have loved these cookies since I was a child. I remember how we used to buy a box of these and then eat them all in one afternoon. I don’t buy them anymore because now they come in a box and a puffy bag that you open and find out that half of what seemed that packed bag is just air. And also because I can make them myself and homemade cookies are the best.
Mix all the dry ingredients, then add the egg yolks and butter and knead (at the end with your hands) until you have a compact dough.
Place a sheet of baking paper on a tray, form small “loafs” and place them on the tray. The dough is quite dry and it can crumble a little so you might have to knead small pieces of the dough in your hands properly.
Flatten each loaf with a fork to give it the fork imprint.
You can place the cookies close to each other, they will not rise.
Preheat the oven on 180°C/356°F and bake for about 10 minutes. Each oven bakes a little differently so you might watch the first batch you bake to see if you need to adjust the time. Let them cool down completely and have a snack!
