Old Fashion Coconut Biscuits
Whenever I think about my grandma's kitchen, I'm immediately transported back to the sweet scent of fresh baking. My grandma was a master baker and her kitchen was always filled with delicious treats. I remember watching her as she measured out the ingredients, mixing the coconut flakes, flour, and sugar with such care and precision. As she worked, she would share stories of her childhood, and I loved listening to her tales. To this day, the smell of coconut takes me back to those lovely memories in my grandma's kitchen.
3/4 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Desiccated coconut
2 cups Flour
1 teaspoon Baking powder
Preheat your oven to 180°C and line some baking trays with baking paper.
Place your butter and sugar into a mixing bowl, and whisk till light and creamy.
Add the coconut and mix through.
Sift the dry ingredients over the mix, and use a wooden spoon to mix.
Use your hands to form a dough, shape it into a log, cover it in glad wrap, and place it in the fridge for 30 minutes.
On a clean kitchen counter, place two large pieces of cling film next to each other, and sprinkle with flour.
Cut the dough in half and place it on the cling film.
Dust your dough with flour, place another piece of cling film over the dough and gently roll out to about 3mm thick.
Using a cookie cutter, cut out your cookies, place them on them your baking trays and bake for 7-8 minutes. Your cookies should be a light brown and still soft when you take them out, they become crisp when cooling.
