Should we use sweetened or unsweetened coconut in cookies?

Sweetened coconut is generally used in sweet recipes, like cakes and cookies, while unsweetened coconut is generally used in savory recipes, like curries and granola. Therefore if you need totally sugary cookie, then sweetened coconut is the way.

Will coconut cookies go bad faster?

It could lose the taste faster. Generally storing coconut cookies will last for 1 week approximately.

How do I make my cookie more chewie or soft?

You can remove the whites from the eggs. The whites harden or dry out when baked, making the cookie overall hard. You could instead put more yolks to keep the cookie moist and chewy. You may also use brown sugar instead of white sugar.

What difference does brown sugar do if used instead of white sugar?

Brown sugar makes the cookie denser and condensed. If that is how you prefer your cookies to be, then you should definitely try replacing white sugar with brown.

What happens if baking powder is used instead of baking soda?

Avoid using baking powder for cookies. They would make the cookies more cakey. Baking soda helps cookies spread more than baking powder. You’d also need more amount of baking powder since it is less effective than baking soda.

Will cookies be edible if melted butter is used?

Melted butter reacts differently with other ingredients. It will be edible but have different texture after baking. Melted butter isn’t preferred for baked goods.
