Holidays are around and everybody wants to enjoy them in their own special way! Just feeling warm inside the house watching a movie, Going on a road trip to a holiday destination, Inviting friends and relatives home for a lunch or dinner, a get-together, a potluck or whatever it is.. these cookies make a special treat. Not just for the holidays , baking them is so easy that you just have to mix up the ingredients, bake'em and have it ... whenever you like.


  • All purpose flour - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 3/4 cup
  • Coconut Flakes - 1/4 cup
  • Crushed almonds - 1/4 cup
  • Cloves - 5 crushed
  • Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Cinnamon powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Butter - 6 to 8 tbsp
  • Salt - 1/2 tsp
  • Baking soda - 1/2 tsp

How to make it:

Pre-heat oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Dust a non stick cookie sheet with some flour. Mix all the dry ingredients together. Add softened butter and mix it well. It should still be a powder and not like a dough ball. On a flat surface, spread the cookie mix for about an 1/2 inch thick and press it little hard with your hand until it sets tight. Once the mix is set, cut out the required shape using a cookie cutter. If the shape breaks when taking out from a cookie cutter, then it needs little more butter (Add more butter only if needed). Place it on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 12-15 minutes.

For making it as a gift:

Take a clear glass bowl and spread some paper grass (make it green or red for the holidays). Arrange the cookies over the grass. Cover it with any transparent sheet and tie a ribbon. Don't forget a personalized card! Happy Holidays!!
