I have been going through my Mum’s The Australian Women’s Weekly Recipe Card Library collection circa 1980’s and have decided I want to bring back some of the old style down to earth recipes. No fancy ingredients, just standard fridge and pantry items most people have or buy on a regular basis.
The first recipe I am making are the Crisp Coconut Biscuits. These are easy peasy, no shaping just roll, press flat with your hands, then press into sugar.
125 gm, softened butter
1 Cup Raw Sugar
2 Cups Self-Raising Flour
1 Cup Coconut
Extra Sugar for pressing the dough into
LET’S PUT IT ALL TOGETHER
1. Cream the butter and sugar then beat in the egg.
2. Add sifted flour, salt and coconut. Mix well.
3. Lightly flour your hands and then take teaspoonfuls of the dough and roll into balls, press flat between hands; dip the top side into the extra sugar.
4. Place on to a lined baking tray, allowing room for spreading and bake in a 180 degree celcius oven for 10-15 minutes.
Makes about 35
Store in an airtight container for up to 7 days (if they last that long).
