Coconut Cookies (Hindistan Cevizli Kurabiye)

250 gr (2 sticks) butter/margarine, at room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
2 egg yolks (whites for top)
1 tsp baking powder
3½ cups flour
6 Tbsp shredded coconut
1 tsp vanilla

Take butter/margarine and powdered sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix them to homogenize and then, add egg yolks, vanilla and 3 Tbsp coconut shreds. Start adding flour and baking powder. Knead until the dough gets soft.
Prepare walnut size balls and gently press on tops. Take the coconut flakes (preferably shreds) over a flat plate. Beat the egg whites and first dip the top of the cookies in egg whites and then in the remaining coconut shreds. Place them over a greased oven/cookie tray.
Bake in 350F (180C) preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes or until they get lightly browned.
ENJOY
