Coconut Biscuits

Recipe from Favourite Muffins, Biscuits, Cakes and Slices
Images by Yasmin

(makes approximately 35 - 40)

I made these biscuits just in time for the new school year. They remind me of Anzac Biscuits, but they have a more refreshing flavour; just what one needs in an exhausting school day. The tang of lime and the unique flavour and texture of coconut combine perfectly in a citrus blend, to make these wonderful biscuits, suited well for packing lunches, having a snack or serving for afternoon/morning tea. I recommend this new recipe.

  • 1/2 cup butter, chopped
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup SR flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup desicated coconut
  • 2 tsps finely grated lemon zest
  • 2 tblsps lime juice

Place all ingredients in a food processor and combine. Make small balls of mixture and place them well seperated on a greased tray. Press down to make a circular shaped biscuit. Cook at 180'C fan-forced for 12 - 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Serve.
