The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Chocolate Chip Coconut Biscuits/Cookies

We love our treats. And I love making them and this weekend, I made a batch of choc chip biccies. Biscuits are so easy and simple to make - the ingredients list is usually quite short and chucking them together is pretty straightforward. Anyway, here's a recipe for the biscuits I made and Rob loves them!


90g butter (softened to room temperature)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup raw sugar
1 egg
2 cups plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
90g (or more!) dark chocolate chips/bits (can use chopped chocolate too)
Milk as needed


1) Preheat oven to 190degC.
2) Cream the butter, vanilla extract and sugar together in a large mixing bowl.
3) Beat the egg into the mixture.
4) In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, coconut and dark choc bits.
5) Gradually add the dry mix to the wet mix and mix well.
6) If dough is dry and crumbly, add milk a little at a time as needed until dough is no longer dry.
7) Roll tablespoonfuls of the dough, flatten slightly and place on a baking tray that has either been lightly greased or lined with baking paper. Makes about 20.
8) Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
