View Full Version : Extruder/ Press for Coconut cookies?
07-07-2011, 07:23 PM
I am making something similar to the Go Raw Sesame, Coconut, and Date Cookies. Essentially poker chip size and thickness.
I am trying to recreate that and wanted to know if anyone had experience using a press or extruder for these crumbly until compressed seedy type of "dough".
It is just really time consuming trying to make these by hand.
Thanks for any help.

Do you mean like a spritz cookie press? I would think that it would work.

Yeh, but because this is not refined white flour and sugar, it probably won't go through the tiny holes that they have and I am afraid won't stay together. Some of them have pastry decorating tips to attach, which might work if any of them was big enough.
I experimented with compressing it into a log and then trying to slice it.....tricky.....and then putting them on a sheet and pressing with the bottom of a glass.
There just has to be an easier quicker way.
What are you doing now - are you rolling a bit into a ball and then pressing it flat? *Ü*

Yes, I had been just balling them. HOwever, I would like to make dozens of these as they are perfect for snacking for 3yro.
Can't do the balling thing....I just don't have enough time.
Someone has to have figured this out.

Have you tried a small ice cream scoop / melon baller / etc? That's what I use to make macaroons, but I'm not sure if that is exactly what you're aiming for or not

How about rolling or pressing the dough out then use a cookie cutter?

I'll bet the 3yr old would love shapes.

I think that what I am going to try is a pastry bag with some really wide tips. However, I don't have that right now. These cookie/crakers are hard to move, hence not wanting to roll them out, etc. because they crumble so easy. I think that if I get the dough compressed and then put it into the pastry bag that would extrude them in a way that they won't get stuck in little holes.
