My excuse for making these was the fact that my crocuses were flowering and I wanted them on the picture ;). Seriously though, these coconut cookies are delicious. Crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside and on top of that with a hint of honey. How can a coconut fan (me!) want more? The recipe comes from Asia and she took it from Linda Dannenberg’s book “Paris Boulangerie Patisserie. Recipes from Thirteen Outstanding French Bakeries”. Enjoy!
Originally these buns were supposed to be with creme cheese and raisins but male part of my family prefers apple over cheese so I had to compromise. Most of the dough was used to make the apple ones but I prepared some for me and my mom with cheese too. I set the dough to rise overnight in the fridge so enjoyed warm product with my morning coffee :). My recipe comes from here. Enjoy!
Anzac biscuits are popular in Australia and New Zealand and have long been associated with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) established in World War I. Apparently these biscuits were sent by wives to soldiers abroad because the ingredients do not spoil easily and the biscuits kept well during naval transportation.
