life savers.

Oh right, and below is the recipe for the life-saving coconut cookies that Mara made last night to replace the inedible dango (the "dough" for which is pictured above).


coconut tea cookies.

125g butter
90g raw sugar
1 egg
100g shredded coconut
125g flour
pinch of salt
powdered sugar for rolling out

Soften butter at room temperature and cream it with the sugar until fluffy, add beaten egg in, and mix well.

Sift flour and salt together and fold into creamed butter. Add
shredded coconut and knead into dough, adding enough flour to make dough non-sticky and manageable. Place dough in the fridge, covered with plastic wrap for like an hour or so to chill.

When you're ready to roll the cookies out, take a portion of the dough out of the fridge, roll it out flat on a cutting board dusted with powdered sugar, and cut the cookies out into whatever shape you like, placing them on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Put the tray in the oven and bake at 175C for 6 minutes...they're very thin so you have to watch them carefully.
