Vanilla Coconut Biscuits With Raspberry Icing


Vanilla Coconut Biscuits With Raspberry Icing

INGREDIENTS

 

125g butter softened

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1 3/4 cups of spelt flour

1/4 cup desiccated coconut

1 egg

1/2 ts vanilla extract

1/2 ts baking powder

 

Icing

100g icing sugar

drop of hot water

1ts butter

2-3 frozen raspberries, thawed and smashed with a fork

Sprinkles/choc chips – whatever your kids are into!

 

METHOD

 

Preheat oven to 175 fan bake and line a baking tray. 

Mix butter and sugar together. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat well.

Mix sifted flour and baking powder together and add coconut. Fold into butter mix and knead to make a ball. 

It is quite a wet mixture so sometimes you need to add a little more flour/coconut. Let it rest in the fridge for about 30min (or more) to firm up. 

Roll out dough until you get the desired thickness for your biccies. Cut into shapes and put onto the tray. Bake for 10-12 minutes. 

Let cool completely before icing.

 

Icing 

Sift icing sugar into a bowl, add butter and drop of hot water onto the teaspoon of butter to help it melt and mix. Add mashed berries until you reach desired spreading thickness (you can always add more water if not wet enough, but a little goes a long way).

Let it set before adding to biscuits. Decorate.

Makes about 22-24 biscuits depending on size of cookie cutters. 

This dough freezes really well. Sometimes I put half of the mixture in freezer for another day.
