Author Notes: gluten + dairy free | these biscuits, are like what would happen if a jam and coconut slice had a love affair with a coconut macaroon and gave birth to a jam drop. but in totally delectable, into-tea-dunkable biscuit form | first published on my blog alittlealice.comjess | alittlealice.com

Makes: 24

  • 1/2 cup castor sugar
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut (unsweetened)
  • 2 1/2 cups gf flour (your preferred blend/type, I used a plain gf flour)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 200g grams vegan butter (i used nuttelex, normal unsalted butter is fine also)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup jam of choice
  1. preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  2. combine sugar, coconut, plain flour, baking powder, vanilla, butter and egg in a mixing bowl using an electric mixer.
  3. on two lined baking trays, roll dough into small balls. using the back of a teaspoon, make an indent in the centre of the cookies. fill with about 1/4 teaspoon on jam.
  4. bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. cool completely (hot jam burns!!) and serve. will keep in an airtight jar in the pantry for about 5 days.
