I made this last week, and a double batch vanished within 24hours. They were scummy, light, melt-in-your-mouth flavoursome and impossible to resist.
I am a big fan of coconut, so I made sure they had a very strong coconut-y flavor. They aren't very healthy (Oops!) but I am so in love with their taste, they are going in my 'Fabulous Recipe" folder anyway.
1 cup of self-raising flour
1 1/4 cup of shredded coconut
1 cup of fine sugar
1 room temperature egg
1/3 cup of butter
Step 1.) Melt the butter in a small saucepan.
Step 3.) Stir the flour, coconut, sugar and egg together in a large bowl.
Step 4.) Pour the butter into the bowl, and form the mixture into little balls. ( If the mixture doesn't come together, try adding a little more melted butter)
Step 5.) Place the balls on a baking paper coated tray. Take a fork and press the biscuits flat.
Step 6.) Cook at 180 degrees until light brown, remove from oven and allow to cool.
