Ginger cookies with coconut & tutti frutti

Another great day. Altough the it isn't as hot as it was, it's just lovely to be outside. Picture me laying in the grass drinking mint lemonade and listening music. In bikini of course (: You get the idea (: Relaxing relaxing relaxing. I hope you enjoyed your days as much as I did!

Boefje is also enjoying the sun

But my weekends, yeah I had three days weekend, are never complete without baking something sweet. Today I was in the mood for cookies. There was still ginger in the fridge, I love that ingredient. It had its own special taste, something that makes you instantly aware of what's in the cookies. Or brownies. Or cupcakes. I just love it. Anyway, I'll give you a little how-to. It's easy!

You need:
  • 250 gr soft butter
  • 165 sugar
  • 1 egg yolk, slightly stirred
  • 50 gr ginger, cut frail
  • 2 tablespoons ginger syrup, this is in the same glass jar
  • 250 gr flour
  • small touch of salt
  • 50 gr tutti frutti (I used prunes and apricots)
  • 90 gr grated coconut

1. Stir the butter and sugar airy and add the egg yolk.
Now is also the time to add the ginger syrup.

2. Sieve the flour and the salt trough the butter/sugar.

3. Cut the ginger and tutti frutti. Add the fruit to the batter and mix it all.

4. Mix also the grated coconut trough the batter.

5. Preheat the over on 190 °C and cover the baking plates with baking paper.
Then make small ball of the batter and press them together, as you see bove.
I used two plates. Oh and of course you should bake them, approximately 15 minutes.

The result, yummy for tea time!
