I’ve been making these biscuits since I was 10. They’re really easy, the only problem – if that’s a problem at all! – is that it yields a huge amount of biscuits. You’d better summon some help because scaling down requires advanced Maths knowledge – 3 eggs, see? So call in a friend for a pleasant afternoon It’s totally worth it!
(yields about 300 small biscuits)
50g desiccated coconut
100ml coconut milk
300g unsalted butter, room temperature
400g caster sugar
In a small bowl combine desiccated coconut and coconut milk and set it aside for a few minutes.
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and work with your hands to form a ball. Take small portions and roll into balls. Bake at 180°C for about 10-15 minutes.
NOTES: I’ve baked 3 batches of 54 and frozen the other half of the dough.
To make it more festive, I brushed the tops with a little gold pearl dust.
