  Butter 125 Gram
  Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Egg 1
  Self-raising flour 2 Cup (32 tbs), sifted
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Desiccated coconut 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Castor sugar 2 Tablespoon

Cream butter and sugar, beat in egg and stir in flour, salt and coconut. Take teaspoons of the mixture, roll into balls and press flat with the back of a spoon. Dip one side of each biscuit in castor sugar and place, sugar side up and well apart, on greased oven trays. Top with cherry slices if desired. Bake in a moderately hot oven 190C (375F) 10-15 minutes or until golden. Ease biscuits with a spatula, cool 3 minutes on trays then transfer to a wire rack until cold. Store in an airtight jar. Makes about 40.
COCONUT DISCS: Follow above recipe but use only 1 cup of flour. This gives a thinner biscuit with a slightly chewy texture.
