♥ All Butter Biscuits with a Coconut Crust
Classic, elegant and simple. These little biscuits are great for any time and any occasion. A modest and easy recipe with melt in your mouth results.
I made these at the end of August last year for a cousins family reunion in London. The last event before my husband, son and I headed back to Dubai after the long summer.
It was a fun afternoon catching up with extended family that had been continuously growing in my absence. It was exciting to see some very new additions and some of my cousins’ children who have since turned into full grown adults – how long had I been away?!
I brought along these all butter biscuits to have with coffee and tea after the lunch. It was my way of sharing my experience of baking and to let them have a taste of what had been keeping me busy over in Dubai! I created an easy recipe so I could whip them up fresh that morning before the event and kept the flavour popular to cater for all ages.
These biscuits are easy to pack and are great for gifting. They should last a week in an airtight container once cooled. Instead of chilling in the refrigerator, the raw dough can even be frozen up to a fortnight and baked for homemade biscuits quickly at any time.
Some of those who came along to the cousins’ lunch asked for the recipe soon after so I thought it was about time I wrote it up. So here it is in 2017… better late than never!
Please have a go at these and let me know how you get on. Remember to send me photographs too for the Rena Bakes gallery. Thank you and enjoy!
