Coconut and Jam cookies


Please forgive my lack of blogging, it has been a tad chaotic at The Cake Doctor’s Practice. We have had a lot of cake orders of late in addition to all our classes and workshops. I have been playing with recipes but just when I remember to take a photo of the cakes or biscuits I get distracted or they get eaten!

I was determined to write something up today so this the first of three!


8 oz softened butter

5 oz caster sugar

1 egg yolk

1 tsp vanilla extract

10oz plain flour

4 oz desiccated coconut

6 tbs jam ( I used strawberry)

1.Preheat the oven to 180C / 160C fan

2.Beat the sugar, egg, vanilla and butter together until light and fluffy

3.Mix in the flour and coconut to form a stiff paste

4.Line a baking tray with parchment paper

5.Form the dough into walnut sized balls and place on the tray. I used a small ice cream scoop. Make sure you leave enough space for the cookies to spread.

6.Pass the jam through a sieve to ensure an even consistency.

7. Use the end of a wooden spoon to form a small dent in the top of each cookie then fill the dent with jam.

8. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown.

9. Allow to cool on the tray for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
