You can’t beat a good biscuit. As much as I try to be a good girl, that sweet tea dunk will always be my weak spot!
I love coconut but hadn’t really baked with it until I decided to make my mum a coconut and cherry birthday cake, one of her favourites! I had lots of leftover desiccated coconut so decided to make these quick and easy little beauties.
150g plain flour
100g desiccated coconut
1. Cream the butter and sugar together until smooth and beat the egg in
2. Gradually add in the flour and desiccated coconut until the mixture is thick and gloopy
3. Line a tray with baking paper (don’t grease it) and drop on teaspoons of mixture. As you can see, these really spread out so stick to four per tray
4. Bake at 180C for 12-15 minutes, or until slightly brown on the edges. The cookies may seem soft when you remove them from the tray, but they harden as they cool down. This recipe makes around 20 cookies!
These cookies are really light, so much so that you can almost see through them! Crunchy round the edges and chewy in the middle, a couple of these with a cup of tea and a YouTube binge is the stuff of slobby dreams!
