One of the best homemade biscuits I have ever had the pleasure of making. The boiled butter/sugar created a slightly thick almost toffee like mixture. I am unsure if I let it go a little too long past "just boiling" but it was a success. I wasn't sure what a "little" hot water was so just added little splashes extra til it looked like a manageable consistency. I definitely wouldn't say it is like a shortbread though, like Seasoned Cook's review said...so maybe it did make a difference. Either way, they're fabulous. Next time I would double the cocoa as our personal pref if for stronger chocky flavour, and reduce the coconut to one cup, maybe one and a half. This recipe will be used again and again.

EXCELLENT flavor! We enjoy chocolate and coconut. The texture is somewhat like a shortbread cookie. I only put 1 cup of coconut and used real butter. I increased the cocoa by 1 tablespoon to increase the chocolate flavor. These changes are only personal preferences and do not reflect on the recipe. I know for sure that I will be making these cookies again. Two guests of mine had great compliments about them. Prepared as a participant in the Aus/NZ Swap #28 May 2009.

This was a lovely recipe. I found myself squeezing the dough with my fingers in molding it for it to hold its shape. Nevertheless, even if it was a tad bit crumbly, love the crisp and it tastes like shortbread cookies. Thanks. Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #30.
