Coconut Biscuits


Coconut Biscuits ...  Delicious chewy biscuits loaded with desiccated coconut.


Coconut Biscuits
******************

Makes : 24


Ingredients :
  • 65 gm.  butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp.  vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp.  baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups desiccated coconut

Method :
  • Beat butter and sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until creamy. 
  • Beat in the egg and vanilla. 
  • Sift the flour and baking powder onto the mixture; beat on a low speed to combine. Stir in the coconut.
  • Shape the mixture into two logs, wrap in greaseproof paper and refrigerate or freeze for 30 minutes until firm.
  • Heat oven to 160 C. Line two baking trays with nonstick baking paper. 
  • Slice 1cm thick rounds and place on prepared baking trays. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until pale golden.
  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.

Notes : 
  • You can make them ahead and freeze the unbaked biscuit logs for up to two months. Just slice the frozen logs into rounds and bake them.
  • You can roll the logs in colored coconut to cover the sides, before wrapping. I've also used some colored coconut in the biscuit mixture.
