Coconut Cookies

I love, love, love the taste of coconut thats why I have incorporated into my fail safe cookie mixture. These cookies are lovely and crunchy on the outside and have a slightly soft centre, with a sweet coconuty taste. Perfect go go along with some afternoon tea or a glass of cold milk. I found this blue china set in my cupboards, not sure where it is from but I adore it :) Want cookies that are ready in eat in less than 25 mins? Read on...

What You Will Need:

50g Caster Sugar
50g Soft Brown Sugar
75g Margarine
150g Self raising Flour
tbsp Golden Syrup
30g Desiccated Coconut
Splash Vanilla Essence
Splash Milk


Preheat oven to 190 degrees and grease baking trays

Mix together caster sugar, brown sugar and margarine until soft and creamy

Add Syrup and a small drop of vanilla essence. Then add the desiccated coconut and stir in

Sieve flour and add to mixture, and mix using a spoon

The mixture should be a bit dry so add some milk, until you are able to knead it together with your hands

Roll into balls and place on greased tray, do not flatten. They will flatten in the oven

Bake for 10- 15 minutes, They should be slightly soft when they come out of the oven, but will harden as they cool.

TIP * I used a splash of dairy free coconut milk to add a wee bit more flavour. Its fine to use normal milk though :) I discovered this milk last week and its lush. Its low in calories, free from all the nasties and a good source of vitamins. Its great to drink on its own too. The milk is by the brand Kara. You can check it out here. It should be available in most supermarkets *

Happy Baking!
