Red wine chocolate coconut cookies recipe

Red wine chocolate coconut cookies

Red wine + coconut + chocolate in a cookie is unusual but delicious. You have just to take my word for it, or try it yourself. 

The cookies are light and crispy, not very sweet and have a complex flavor.  

The aroma from combining red wine and cocoa or chocolate is absolutely divine. I cannot explain in words the aroma but it reminds me of high quality Mexican vanilla beans. Unfortunately some of the aroma disappears once the cookies are baked but I guess you can’t have everything. 

The cookie dough is unlike regular cookie dough, instead it is more like bread dough. As such it is quite workable and easy to form into shapes.

Adopted from an earlier recipe I made for red wine coconut cookies

1¾ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup desiccated coconut
¼ cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup sugar
½ cup vegetable oil
½ cup full-bodied red wine

1. Mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, coconut and salt into a large bowl
2. Stir in the sugar, oil, and wine to form a stiff dough
3. Shape the dough and place them on a lightly greased cookie sheet
4. Bake at 360 F (180 C) for 20 minutes.
