Recipe: Chunky Coconut and Cherry Biscuits from The Groovy Food Company

I am a huge biscuit fan. I tend to buy the usual basics from the supermarket (custard creams and cookies are favourites), but every now and again I love to crack open the oven and get baking.

If you’re the same as me, then you should try out this amazing recipe for beautiful biscuits from The Groovy Food Company.

If you’re a fan of shortbread you’ll love these coconutty biscuits. If they aren’t all gobbled up, they’ll keep for 3 days in a sealed container. Coconut oil is usually solid at room temperature but if it’s a hot day or you’ve got the heating on it may melt and become liquid – just pop the jar in the fridge to firm it up.

Makes about 24 biscuits | Prep 20 mins, plus chilling | Cook 15 mins

Ingredients:
125g The Groovy Food Company Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, solid (at room temp)
75g golden caster sugar or xylitol
1 egg, beaten
225g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
25g cornflour
85g glace or dried cherries, chopped
3 tbsp desiccated coconut

Method:
1. Whisk together the coconut oil and sugar with electric beaters until pale and creamy. Add a pinch of salt and the remaining ingredients, except the desiccated coconut and cherries, then whisk to combine – the mixture should resemble breadcrumbs. Stir through cherries then get your hands in and squeeze firmly to form a dough.
2. Shape into two 14cm logs, wrap in cling film twisting the ends like a cracker, and chill for 20 mins.
3. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line two trays with baking parchment. Slice the dough into circles about 1cm thick, a serrated knife works well, and space well on the trays. Scatter over the desiccated coconut and very lightly push down on each biscuit with the palm of your hand. Bake for 15 mins until golden. Leave to cool on the trays for 10 mins, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
