Since I moved to the UK I've really developed an addiction to biscuits. Today I'm working from home and really fancied something sweet, but our cupboards were completely devoid of even the tiniest crumble of biscuits or sweets, so I decided to bake something instead. This is an easy recipe based on what I could find at home. These biscuits are heavenly, melt in your mouth delicious, with a light lemon flavour and a bit of crunch from the coconut.
Lemon and coconut biscuits (15 biscuits)
100 g butter
0.75 dl sugar
zest from 1 lemon
1 tsp baking powder
1.5 dl flaked coconut
1 dl ground almond
1.5 dl flour
Preheat the oven to 150C.
Cream butter and sugar, stir in lemon zest and baking powder.
Stir almond, coconut and flour into the butter mix.
Roll out the cookie dough into a 2-3 cm wide log, and cut into 1 cm slices.
Transfer slices onto a buttered baking sheet and flatten slightly with a fork.
Bake for around 15 min.
Let cool slightly and devour with a cup of tea or coffee.
