Crumbly Coconut and Raspberry Biscuits…

“Only the man who is not hungry

says the coconut has a hard shell.”

-African Proverb

Fortunately, no coconuts to crack for this recipe…

it uses desiccated coconut…and I hope you are hungry!

Flatten and spread out on a baking sheet.

Method:

  1. Pre- heat the  oven 180°C/ 375°F/gas mark 4
  2. Cream the butter and sugar into a bowl by beating them together until smooth.
  3. Add the beaten egg and beat again.
  4. Reserve 2 rounded tablespoons of coconut and add the rest to the creamed mixture and then the flour.
  5. Mix all the ingredients together to give a smooth, firmish dough.
  6. Divide the dough, roll each piece into a ball, then roll them in the reserved coconut.
  7. Flatten the balls to about 4-5cm  in diameter and place them on the parchment lined baking.
  8. Make a thumbprint on top of each biscuit and fill with jam.
  9. Bake the biscuits in the centre of the oven for 15mins, or until they are a light-golden colour.
  10. Leave the biscuits to cool for a few minutes, then move on to a wire rack to cool completely.
