coconut cherry cookies

October 13, 2009 at 10:57 pm | Posted in Cookies, Fruit | 2 Comments

i have been wanting to recreate a coconut raisin cookie one of my friends baked for me a couple of years back but she can’t remember which recipe she used. i had to use up the packet of sweetened flaked coconut i got weeks back so i decided on a simple recipe.

the coconut taste came through sufficiently – it was not overpowering. the cookie also had a nice crisp.

5 oz butter, softened
3 oz caster sugar
2 tsp vanilla essence
5 oz self-raising flour
2.5 oz sweetened flaked coconut (Baker’s brand)
glace cherries, quartered

1. cream butter, sugar and vanilla essence till light and fluffy.

2. add flour and stir with a wooden spoon. add coconut and mix until combined.

3. prepare ungreased baking sheets. roll into small balls and flatten slightly by pressing the cherry quarters in. bake for about 15 mins or slightly brown on the edges. leave to cool on sheets for about 10 minutes before transferring onto wire racks.

yes, alonso is no longer in liverpool but because he is the birthday boy’s favourite player, i had to include his name. this was a fun set to do – thanks to daddy who helped me with the logo, balls and boots! 🙂
