Recipe – Easy Fruit and Coconut Biscuits

Biscuits are the easiest things to make, with minimal ingredients even young kids can get involved. Everyone loves the result too!

To make 10-12, you will need:

  • 100g cooking margarine
  • 50g golden caster sugar
  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 50g dried currants
  • 50g desiccated coconut with little more for sprinkling

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees. Flour a baking tray (or line with baking parchment).

With a wooden spoon, cream the marge and sugar in a bowl. Mix in the remaining ingredients, finishing off with your hands to make a thick dough.

Roll into balls roughly 2cm in diameter and place on the baking sheet. You will need to space them out well as they will spread. Flatten them slightly with two fingers.

Sprinkle a little coconut over the top and bake for 12-15 minutes until just turning golden brown. Cool on the baking tray for a few minutes then finish on a wire rack until crispy.
