- Prep Time: 20 minutes
- Bake Time: 5 minutes
- Serves: 1
- Complexity: easy
- For the dough:
- 2 cups of flour
- 3/4 cup of sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- A little less than 2/3 cup of oil
- Pinch of salt
- For the coating:
- 3 tablespoons of orange blossom water
- 1 cup of apricot jam (or your favorite fruit jam)
- 2 cups of natural unsweetened coconut flakes
For making the cookies:
1- Mix all the dry ingredients together: the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
2- In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with the vanilla extract and the oil.
3- Fold in the flour mixture into the egg mixture.
4- Make small balls with the dough and place them on a baking pan covered with parchment paper.
5- Preheat your oven at 350 degrees and bake the cookies for 15 minutes.
Note: Make sure to keep space between the dough balls as they spread out when baking.
For rolling the cookies:
6- Mix the jam with the orange blossom and microwave for 30 seconds.
7- Dip 2 cookies still hot in the jam mixture, join them together and dip them again in the jam mixture until they are completely covered with jam.
8- Roll the 2 joined cookies in the coconut flakes.
9- Re-do steps 7 and 8 for all the cookies.
Note: these cookies taste even better the next day once they absorb the flavors of the orange blossom and the jam.
These cookies taste amazing with Moroccan tea.
