IMG_20160317_091003

I have already made butter custard cookies in my pre vegan days, they were super delicious and then I totally forgot about it. Then again CH had posted custard cookies and that reminded about the cookies I baked and I wanted to make it, but now it required dairy butter and I was in a fix, but I love my vegan challenges, it makes me think and gives some work for my brain, then  I came up with this super delicious vegan coconut twist in custard cookies. Those who are not vegan also loved it,and this recipe is a keeper and will be regular in my kitchen. So let’s start making.

Notes
If the weather is cold you don’t have to keep the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes, just 10 minutes is enough or when the oven is on pre-heat just keep it in the fridge at that time for 10 minutes.
I had kept mine in the fridge for 30 minutes it was very hard when I took it out and also it was very cold at that time in Bangalore so it depends on the weather where you’re staying I guess.
