Traditional Coconut Biscuits
|Butter||8 Ounce (225 Gram)|
|Sugar||8 Ounce (225 Gram)|
|Vanilla essence||3 Drop (Adjust Quantity As Needed)|
|Plain flour||1 Pound (450 Gram)|
|Baking powder||3 Teaspoon|

Cream together the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl.
In a smaller bowl beat together the eggs with the vanilla.
Slowly beat the eggs into the creamed mixture until it has all been used up.
Fold in the sifted flour and baking powder, then finally the coconut.
Mix well together lightly, until it has formed a soft biscuit dough.
Using a biscuit maker, press out into required shapes onto a baking sheet.
Alternatively roll out onto a lightly floured board and cut into attractive shapes.
Bake for almost 20 minutes or until a light golden shade and cool on a wire tray.
