Coconut Biscuits

A nice crips coconut biscuit goes really well dunked in a cup of tea.

This biscuit recipe excepting a small tweak has come from my very old and well-loved Australian Woman’s Weekly The Big Book of Beautiful Biscuits.

These biscuits are very simple to make and a perfect go-to biscuit to always have on hand.

When making the biscuits you can either scoop using a teaspoon or use a cookie/ice cream scoop.
I prefer to use a cookie scoop as it gives me biscuits of all the same approximate size.
Cookie scoops are not too expensive and can be purchased from here.
I use this amazing baking tray from Pyrex. It is the best baking tray I have ever used. Take a look for yourself.
