Everyone deserves a tasty teatime treat every now and again and these sweet, coconut topped biscuits are the perfect recipe - and ready in no time!


  • 100g (4oz) butter, softened
  • 25g (1oz) cornflour
  • 75g (3oz) plain flour
  • 25g (1oz) icing sugar
  • 50g (2oz) desiccated coconut

Top tip: To ensure the biscuits cook evenly, make sure they're all the same size and shape.


  1. Mix the butter with the cornflour, plain flour and icing sugar, using your fingers. Form into small balls and roll each one in the desiccated coconut.
  2. Place the balls well apart on a lined baking sheet and press down lightly with the back of a fork. Bake at 180°C (350°F, gas mark 4) for 15-20 mins until golden.

Could someone tell me what I did wrong,I followed the recipe exactly ,they looked the part when cooked but when I picked them up they just crumbled!!!

they are delicious, I dipped some in coconut, some in chocolate and some in sprinkles for the kids.


Love these, made them with my 22 month old little girl. We used self raising flour & salt less butter, added some almond extract to the mixture & sprinkled extra dessicated coconut on the top before baking. They were amazing :-) very light - definitely make these again - yummmm


Taste was good but the biscuit came as a crumble! translation from French!


Le gout est très bon, mais les biscuits étaient tout cassés, la pâte ne s'est pas solidifiée, comme un crumble

Very, very easy to make. Not quite enough coconut taste I thought and I dipped mine in choc :).
