    Try these delicious coconut biscuits as a change from the regular chocolate chip. This is a very old recipe from at least the 30's.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 36 

    • 250g butter
    • 1 cup (220g) white sugar
    • 1 cup (150g) packed brown sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 1 1/2 cups (185g) plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon bicarb soda
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 2 cups quick cooking oats
    • 1 1/2 cups desiccated coconut
    • 2 cups rice bubbles
    • 1 1/2 cups chopped salted peanuts

    Directions
    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:32min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease baking trays.
    2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time then stir in the vanilla. Sift together the flour, bicarb soda, baking powder and salt, stir into the creamed mixture. Gently stir in the oatmeal, coconut, rice bubbles and chopped peanuts, trying not to pulverize the rice bubbles.
    3. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking trays. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from baking trays to cool on wire racks.

    Great cookie! Chewy with a bit of crunch from the peanuts. Mine turned out a little thin, but I didn't have real butter. A friend suggested using a little less butter when a cookie recipe turns out flat. I'll try that next time. I did try the first batch without coconut (half the family doesn't like it). I added it in before I baked the next batch and was convinced the coconut is vital. It holds together better and gives it great texture. Everyone loved the taste. Thanks for sharing this recipe!  -  24 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Well when I first tried these I thought they were pretty good but then I found myself going back for more and more. Positively addictive! I had to bring them to work to get the away from me. A great salty/sweet, chewy yet crunchy combo. Made just as directed. Excellent.  -  17 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Yum! These are soo good! I did have to adjust the baking time and oven temp though. The first batch set off the smoke alarms! I think I finally got it right by the 3rd batch. 325 degrees for 9 minutes was about perfect. Oh, and these spread (a lot!) while baking, so make sure to space them plenty far apart! I added a bag of butterscotch chips instead of the nuts and mmmmmmmmm!  -  12 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
