Wonderful cookies! I love the taste of coconut in them. As I'm a coconut-freak, I toasted the coconut before mixing in (150°C, 7mins watch closely, they burn FAST!) so the taste would be more pronounced. I used strawberry jam and I brushed them with glaze (egg yolk + 1 tsp water) before baking for the golden look. Thanks for the yummy recipe. I baked them for 23mins because I like crispy, crunchy cookies.

Gorgeous biscuits! Love coconut so we really enjoyed these. I did have a slight problem with the dough being a bit wet, had to add in some extra flour, that took care of it. So, next time I shall start off with 170g of butter and add more if needed. I used strawberry jam since that was what I had on hand. Thank you, kookaburra, for sharing this wonderful recipe, definitely a keeper.

Yep, really good. My mixture was a little wet, so I just added a little extra flour. I made half with jam, and half with lemon curd. Lovely crunch.

Kooka, I absolutely love these! I thought they would be like little coffee cakes so I served them with breakfast, but they are like a soft sugar cookie with strawberry jam. I do not bake much and was surprised they did not need eggs or vanilla. These are definitely something I will make often and try different kinds of jelly and jam and possibly lemon curd. Thanks so much.

Mmmmmm... Used Blackberry & Blueberry jam. The batter wasn't crumbly at all & i think i might start by using less butter next time & adding more bit by bit, if necessary. We were eating them as we were rotating the batches through the process & the end results will be lucky to last more than a day!

Delicious. I made these for my friend's bridal party and everyone loved them! I dusted icing sugar on top to make them extra pretty. I love the fact that they are chewy inside! Yum 5 stars!!!!!!
