Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Rub the flour, sugar and butter together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Alternatively, you can do this in the food processor. Add enough egg to bring the mixture together to form a stiff dough.

  2. Flour your hands and shape the dough into a tube, about 5cm in diameter. Cut into 2cm-thick slices and place on a large baking sheet. Space them out as the mixture will spread when baking.

  3. Make a small indentation in the middle of each slice with the end of a wooden spoon, and drop a tsp of jam in the centre. Bake for 10-15 mins until slightly risen and just golden. Cool on a wire rack.

So simple yet so good! I didn't have any dessicated coconut, but I added 1/4 of a cup of ground almonds to the mixture just before adding the egg, and the flavour and texture was good.

So easy and delicious. My 2yr old and I baked for the first time together and made these, she's been eating them telling everyone she meets about the "sticky cooking" that she did.

Very easy to make and they were gone within seconds. They had just the right amount of sweetness and turned out exactly like the picture. Will be making these again!
