Coconut Topped Cookies (Hindistan Cevizli Kurabiye)

250 gr butter/margarine (~2 sticks), at room temperature
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
3-4 cups flour
½ cup coconut flakes/ shreds, for top

Take the white of one egg and keep for using later. Then, take butter/margarine and sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix them to homogenize and then, add eggs. Start adding flour and baking powder. Knead until getting a soft cookie dough.
Sprinkle some flour over the clean counter and place the dough. Flatten the dough with a roller pin about ½ inches thick. Then, cut pressing with a cup’s brim or a smaller cup. Beat the egg white you kept before and brush the cookies with beaten egg white. Take the coconut flakes (preferably shreds) over a flat plate. Then, dip either sides or just tops in coconut. Place them over a greased oven/cookie tray.
Bake in 350F (180C) preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until they get lightly browned.
ENJOY
