Peanut-Coconut Cookies – It is very funny how fast our tastes change. A lot of things that we never liked sometime in our lives are things that we start to like and enjoy in a different phase of life.
Take for example, bitter gourd. I never liked it as a kid because of its bitter taste. Fast forward it to today and it is one of the vegetables that I liked the most. If you are wondering why all this discussion about bittergourd in a cookie recipe, then I was just trying to be philosophical and building a context for what it to come below….Lol. 🙂
More then any biscuits I prefer having cookies now. They have a unique and rich taste which is probably one of the many reasons that I like it. These nutty and textured cookies are perfect for kids and is perfect for holidays or any other time.
